Welsh talent scheme returns


Ffilm Cymru Wales’ micro-budget filmmaking scheme, Cinematic, is set to return following a successful first outing. Launched in 2013, the scheme supports emerging filmmakers through intensive training, development and project funding. The scheme will support the development of 10 projects and their teams, as well as committing funding to the production and market preparation of three of the projects. The first round launched the feature film directorial debuts of Craig Roberts (Just Jim), Euros Lyn (Y Llyfrgell / The Library Suicides) and Chris Crow (The Lighthouse). The second round is backed by co-founders the BFI and S4C, with additional support from Fields Park Entertainment and Warner Music Supervision. The deadline for applications for the new round is 30 September 2016. To read more, click here.
