Film in Afan (inactive)

Film Hub Wales Member

Leading the way to show other communities in Wales and beyond how they can use film to work together and have fun!

Ffilm Cymru Wales worked with partners in Upper Afan to regenerate schools and community centres as places where everyone can watch and learn all about film.

Pupils at Croeserw Primary ran a vibrant filmclub with local care homes through intergenerational film nights. Having to travel for hours to reach the nearest cinema on a bus journey of just 15 miles each way, it’s not easy for people living in Upper Afan to have the full cinema experience.

Working with parters such as Chapter, Media Education Wales and Gritty Realism, the project aimed to develop a sustainable mobile cinema run by the community, giving residents the opportunity to work with a steering group to programme and operate 3 local cinemas. Filmmaking and literacy workshops along with mentoring in business and marketing provided opportunities for new skills, work experience and the chance to make new friends!
