George Kingsnorth has been working in digital film for over 30 years. Having spent many years working for BBC NI alongside such luminaries as oscar winning director Danny Boyle, George has gone on to develop a career that has seen him write and direct his own movie and recently co-direct his first documentary
George is motivated primarily by a love of storytelling through digital film and a clear understanding of how to realise the potential in a strong collaborative approach.
Following on from his experience on writing and directing the feature film “Fiddlers Walk” George has been developing his next feature which he has written and hopes to direct “The Fiddler’s Wife”. Being able to attend the market place in the Galway Film Fleadh offers George the chance to meet face to face with potential financiers. George will have a number of transnational meetings that will be pre-arranged by the Galway Film Fleadh through a creative momentum project.
As a keen creative mind George has always several projects on the go at any one time and is always keen to find new potential collaborative partners. The transnational event that is the Galway Film Fleadh will offer George the chance to meet and network with potential partners and collaborators from around the world starting with other creative businesses attending the Fleadh through a creative momentum project. These will be from Sweden, Iceland, Finland as well as Northern Ireland. George has already expressed keen interest in finding out more about his fellow creative momentum participants and is keen to make the most of this transnational networking opportunity as well as potentially make a crucial next move towards directing his already written next feature film
The Galway Film Fleadh takes place this July (2017) and will feature masterclasses, transnational networking opportunities, film screenings, pitching competitions as well as a market place for project developers to meet financiers
