I'm a filmmaker, how can Film Hub Wales help me?


Since 2013 and the launch of the Film Audience Network (FAN), FHW has supported the exhibition of 65 unique Welsh features, 24 of which would not otherwise have had a theatrical release. We have seen quality content produced, with an average of 8 Welsh films released annually, many of these self-distributing. With limited marketing resources available and competition for screen space but demand amongst both audiences and exhibitors, our aim is to increase access for all and to celebrate our national identity, language and culture through film. 
 

Film Hub Wales can help to support the release of new and Welsh film content by promoting to our members and wider exhibitor network.
 

If you would like Film Hub Wales to help support your film, please send the following information to lisa@filmhubwales.org:

  • Booking contact or details of distributor (if relevant)
  • Plans for release, including dates
  • Any current bookings including festivals
  • One or two good images and link to trailer
  • Synopsis (preferably outlining any connections to Wales)
  • Booking terms (if relevant)
  • Details of any marketing materials that can be supplied (if any, if there is no distributor)
     

Please note that Film Hub Wales are unable to offer financial support for film production, development and distribution.

 

What else do we do at FHW to support welsh film?

We work year round as part of our Welsh Film Strategy, to promote Welsh film:

  1. Since 2013, we have held 8 Welsh film Preview Days in different locations across Wales. We offer these days to enable exhibitors to see films in advance, network and support wider programing,
  2. We offer a screening room for Hub members where they can view Welsh film screeners online via filmmakers and distributors,
  3. We send out regular newsletters containing updates on releases,
  4. We talk regularly with distributors, filmmakers and agencies such as Ffilm Cymru Wales and Wales Screen on upcoming releases, to ensure that we are passing information through to the network,
  5. We run a young programmers UK network with 4 venues in Wales and many more across the country. This offers opportunities for young audiences to feedback on Welsh films,
  6. We offer a Made in Wales section on our website where a catalogue of Welsh film are listed, including centrally curated packages such as Santes Dwynwen, Ray Milland and Stanley Baker.
  7. We offer Welsh film support to exhibitors to help promote Welsh made, Welsh lanuage and archive film.
