Together, we can help bring your feature film to life.
Who can apply?
Applicant teams would usually have a track record in the creative industries and have some experience relevant to the role they intend to take on the project they’re applying with. To apply for this fund, you must
- Have a single feature length film or documentary proposal which is intended for cinema
- Have Wales born or based talent in the lead writer, producer and/or director role
- Be able to apply through a company registered and centrally managed in the UK. This company should be led by the producer
- Have a viable plan for the film to be fully financed within six months.
Please see the guidelines for our full eligibility criteria. In addition to this, Ffilm Cymru focuses investment on Film Funding Priorities:
- Welsh filmmakers at an early stage of their careers
- Films that are led by under-represented filmmakers and/or speak to audiences traditionally underserved by feature film, including Welsh Language film
- Films with strong artistic value, taking risks on talent, content or form, which the commercial sector would find more difficult to support
- Films that depict Wales and Welsh culture in new and unconventional ways.
