Cymorth Ffilmiau Cymreig 2017


Since 2013 and the launch of the Film Audience Network (FAN), FHW has supported the exhibition of 65 unique Welsh features24 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.

With Bigger Picture Research, we’ve been talking to our partners in distribution, exhibition and production to review what we do and find ways to get more Welsh films out to audiences in the future.

In the publication below, you can read about some of the results and the next steps we’re taking in 2017 or download the review here.

We're also pleased to launch our Welsh film strategy for April - December 2017.
