Established in 2006 and formerly known as the Film Agency for Wales, we have a remit to help to develop a film sector in Wales and maximise the economic, educational and cultural benefits of film. Ffilm Cymru Wales supports Welsh or Wales-based writers, directors and producers with development and production funding, industry assistance and mentoring opportunities. We aim to bring film makers and audiences together by encouraging more people to see more films in more venues. We also promote the use of film in education and community regeneration, producing educational resources in conjunction with teachers to aid literacy and general learning.
