Pilgrimage, directed by Brendan Muldowney and starring  Tom Holland and Richard Armitage, Stephen Burke’s prison drama Maze, and a Joe Heaney biopic, Song Of Granite, are set to screen at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh (11-16 July).

 

Pilgrimage is a thriller set in 13th-Century Ireland, which  centres on a group of Catholic monks travelling through an Irish landscape filled with violent, warring clans in a bid to bring a sacred relic to its eventual destination of Rome

Maze  recounts the true story of a mass escape from Northern Ireland’s Maze prison in 1983, which saw 38 IRA prisoners break out in what was the biggest prison escape in Europe since World War II. It stars Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Martin McCann and Barry Ward.

Song Of Granite, directed by Pat Collins, charts the rise of traditional Irish folk singer Joe Heaney.
