Partners & Friends Appeal.  Guth Gafa is an annual miracle. We keep saying it because it’s true! For a fraction of the budget of any other similar-size film festival in Ireland, we bring the best documentary films in the world and the people who make them to Kells every year, for a truly special experience in magical surroundings.

The only reason it happens is because of YOU ALL, the people who support us by coming to our film festival, the dedicated team, who help behind the scenes to make it happen, and those who support us financially. Every amount, no matter how small, is invaluable to us which is why we reach out to you, not with a begging bowl, but with the belief that we are doing something good for human rights, for great filmmaking, for audiences and for County Meath.

We invite you to partner with us to help this miracle happen once again, this coming Bank Holiday weekend.
