Ffilm Ifanc On Tour



Filmmaking in Wales is on a high right now from Prano Bailey-Bond’s award-winning Censor to The Feast and The Toll. All these tremendous films have put Wales on the cinematic map in 2021. What else does Wales have to offer from its cinematic genius pool?

Young filmmakers and young curators from all over Wales have joined forces under the banner of Ffilm Ifanc (Young Film) to programme and screen short films made by young talent in Wales. They are giving a voice to young creatives in Wales.

“I believe that young peoples voices are often the first to get lost or misconstrued by the media, but with the help of Ffilm Ifanc, we will bring these stories to light and showcase the innovative work that is happening all around us by the youth.”-Bethan Davies (Ffilm Ifanc Member)

Between December 2021-February 2022 Ffilm Ifanc will be launching their tour programme at selected venues all over Wales with their first screenings at Pontio (Bangor) on Wednesday 8th December starting at 7 pm. The tour will then visit Ty Pawb (Wrexham) on 13th January, Cell B (Blaenau Ffestiniog) on 18th January, Yr Egin (Carmarthen) on 25th January, Aberystwyth Arts Centre on 29th January, Torch Theatre (Milford Haven) on 1st February. This tour will offer new opportunities and support for young filmmakers to get their films onto the big screen and in front of new audiences.

“Events like the Ffilm Ifanc team have curated here are so important for the culture and creative growth of Wales. They’ve done a tremendous service to young filmmakers in Wales and the stories they strive to tell. To be part of something like this fills my heart with pride, and I am extremely grateful to have my work professionally presented to new audiences around the country.”-Thomas Elliot Griffiths (director of The Break and Sticks and Feathers)

Rhiannon Hughes, director of the Wicked Wales International Youth Film Festival, which screens short films made by young filmmakers from all over the world, says, “We have been aware for many years of the many talented young filmmakers we have in Wales who were making films. Ffilm Ifanc now provides new opportunities, curated by young people, to get these films put onto the big screen. This happens first with the tour in Wales, and then we want to support Wales’s young talent onto a global stage.”

Ffilm Ifanc has been developed with support from the Wales Youth Festival Network co-ordinator Lorraine Mahoney and Wicked Wales films, Film Hub Wales and Ffilm Cymru Wales.
