Providing a platform for exciting emerging artists in Wales

Ffolio is an exciting new partnership between Ffilm Cymru, BBC Wales, BBC Arts and the Arts Council of Wales. It will offer training, mentoring and BBC commissioning opportunities to emerging creatives in Wales without professional experience in film or TV.

If you’re a dancer, blogger, musician, writer, photographer, graffiti artist, games designer or creative in any form, we want to hear from you.

If shortlisted, you’ll receive training, bespoke support to develop your short film ideas and bursaries for costs such as travel, childcare or an interpreter.
16 ideas will be commissioned for BBC platforms on air and online.
