Film Agency For Wales To Be Officially Launched At Cardiff Film Festival

The Film Agency for Wales, established to proactively facilitate the work of those who are in, or aspire to be in, the film industry in Wales, will be officially launched at Cineworld, Cardiff at 6pm on Tuesday, November 14 as part of the Cardiff Film Festival celebrations.
As part of the launch, The Agency will announce its first feature film co-financing venture, with the support of Arts Council of Wales lottery funds.
The film, which will commence production in and around Cardiff in early January, will be the work of a Welsh born writer-director making his feature debut, having previously directed several network documentaries.
