Made in Wales Funding

Celebrating Wales through film all year round

More People, More Places, More Films

We offer a range of activities each year to enable more people to watch more films with Welsh connections.

If you want to develop audiences for Welsh features or shorts at your cinema, you can make an application to our Film Exhibition Fund (FEF) or FEF Pitch Pot.

We believe that it’s important to celebrate Wales, from emerging talent to pioneering filmmakers, locations to languages, histories and untold narratives.

Since 2013, we’ve supported over 400 films with Welsh connections. We offer a range of activities from preview days to online screeners and a growing catalogue of bookable titles.

We also work with wider Welsh screen organisations to boost profile for Welsh film collectively, reaching new audiences.

Screen Heritage

  • Professionally made feature films, shorts and documentaries whose rights are held by screen archives, e.g. The Life and Times of David Lloyd George (1918) or amateur footage held in personal collections.

Feature Films, Documentaries and Shorts

  • Involving Welsh film talent (director/ producer/ writer/ principal cast) e.g. the films of actor Ray Milland.
  • Made by production companies or filmmakers active in Wales (including those made with Welsh agency or Government funding) e.g. The Eternal Daughter (2023).
  • Set in Wales, or that deal with Welsh stories, events or people e.g. Tiger Bay (1959). Made in the Welsh language e.g. Gwledd (2022).
  • International stories from Welsh storytellers e.g. Donna (2022).
