Heading to the 28th Galway Film Fleadh is IADT graduation short film, A Long Shot, from director Andrew Jordan.

Director Jordan’s¬†previous film Dive screened as part of the Galway Film Fleadh’s Way Out West programme two years ago, and won the Junior Fleadh, and was screened in numerous festivals across Europe.
A Long Shot is produced by Jordan and¬†Bobby Byrne¬†for¬†production company AJ Film, with Matthew Rogan as cinematographer,¬†Neil Horner as sound designer and composer and Conor Maguire as editor.
Producers Jordan and Byrne¬†are delighted to show the film at the Fleadh:
Having the film screen at The Galway Film Fleadh is such an honour and a lovely way to cap off our 4 years in Iadt. It’s great that the hard work of all the cast and crew has been acknowledged with it’s selection. We can’t wait for the Fleadh to begin!
