Now in it's third year, this is a multi-cultural and inclusive project, where a network of 8 venues in the North work together to engage a rural audience in a diverse selection of independent films. 2018 activity includes a new outreach programme off-site, an inclusion film festival (working primarily with TAPE), and Welsh language and Year of Coast and Sea seasons.

This is a new project, which plans to screen six monthly BAME film screenings at various locations, aimed to inspire audiences and support emerging and aspiring young filmmakers, with aims to improve opportunity for training and networking, whilst also reaching BAME audiences.

PROJECT: Generation Hope

ORGANISATION: Gentle/Radical, Cardiff

A series of 10 inclusive screenings catering to diverse communities, drawing on the power of film to bring the issues of our times into democratised, grassroots viewing spaces. Linking film to accessible formats – from a people’s symposium to an intergenerational film and cooking event – these film events will be accompanied by post-screening discussion, workshops or speaker panels, helping us explore, confront and use the power of film and storytelling to decolonise the realities that lie before us.

PROJECT: Watch Africa Film Club


A pilot project, the Wales Africa Film Club is an informal community of people interested in watching, exploring and getting involved in African film. The plan is for 6 events in South and North Wales. Following the pilot, the festival will launch and act as a basis for further activity.

PROJECT: Alternative Film Season

The venue have planned four film events between February and May 2018 that improve access for priority groups such as, LGBTQIA+, BAME, old age groups, low socio-economic, rural and underserved, isolated groups and minority languages. Their will be added value content/materials provided for each screening, such as Q&As, introductions, discussions, workshops and programme notes, and a dedicated team of individuals to gather audience feedback/responses at each event.

PROJECT: Sinemaes & Cinemor


Now in our fourth year of supporting the National Eisteddfod film programme, we plan on presenting all three historical packages created during Britian On Film (Urban, Coastal and Rural), edited and curated with music. As well as two interactive screenings of Jerry the Troublesome Tyke (1925-27), presented by Arad Gogh Theatre with a sound workshop. 

Also for the first time the Sinemaes tent goes to Barry for a weekend event, Cinemor, where we consulted on the screenings and supported promotion for the pilot of a new project Vale Venues. 


ORGANISATION: Pontio, Bangor

A three day event that is a celebration of cinema's unique ability to fuse music and image and sound to create magic. They achieve this by organising events that use image and sound in innovative ways and also turn the cinema into an active performance space for our specially invited artists. Performance is complemented by discussion, engagement and wide participating with outside outside local and national groups.
