Films Selected For Welsh Low Budget Film Scheme

News Image
Ten feature film projects have been selected to participate in Film Agency for Wales’ low budget film scheme.
Cinematic is a tailored training and mentoring programme supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund, which is funded by the National Lottery via the BFI and through the Skills Investment Fund (SIF).
The Film Agency for Wales devised and developed the scheme with help from the BFI Film Fund, BBC Films, S4C and Soda Pictures to support emerging filmmakers from Wales making feature films with budgets of around £300,000.
56 applications were made to the programme following the launch in June.
The ten selected films are Craig’s Film (Working Title), Folie a Deux, Maldod, My Grandfather the Spy, Prism, Random Deaths and Custard, Snapper, The Lighthouse, Up in the Clouds with Lowri and Y Llyfrgell.
"The selection reflects the varied landscape of film in Wales, transcending genre and language, and showcasing indigenous filmmaking talent from across Wales," a statement from the Film Agency for Wales said.
A second round of interviews will take place in January 2014, with the final three projects selected to go into production thereafter.
The three feature films, including one in the Welsh language, will be made over the following 18 months.
The scheme will also encourage a market and distribution focus from an early stage, as well as the exploration of wider IP exploitation.
