Production

Ffilm Cymru Wales supports feature film projects with production and completion funding. We prioritise feature film projects involving a Wales born or based writer, director or producer but we will consider feature films with significant Welsh cultural value or opportunities for Welsh talent.


We make 3-6 production or completion awards a year, at least one of which is toward a feature in the Welsh Language.

We support world-class live-action, documentary and animated feature films, as well as cross-platform projects which have a feature film at their core. We’re always looking for unique stories, which speak to a variety of different audiences (particularly those under-represented in mainstream cinema), and which have well-developed plans in place for reaching those audiences. Inclusion (behind-the-camera, on-screen and for audiences) is at the heart of everything we do. This commitment to Inclusion is always guided by the context of working in and for Wales and our broad slate of feature films includes Welsh cultural content and work in the Welsh language as well as international co-productions.

We encourage recipients of our production or completion funding to build demand for their project and to maximise the value of the intellectual property they have created. We work with filmmakers on Inclusion plans and through our Magnifier system, we offer audience-testing, brand extension, and networking opportunities with individuals from a range of creative disciplines.

Our funding is intended for projects that are unlikely to be fully financed by the market and so require National Lottery support.

Filmmaking teams applying for production or completion funding should be able to evidence previous experience in writing, directing and producing. First-feature talent may be better suited to our biennial low-budget film scheme Cinematic, though we will support distinctive first features with production funding. Less experienced talent may also refer to our Welsh Talent Network, which is supported by the BFI.

Production applications for £50,000 or under are received on a rolling basis. Production applications for £50,000 or over are assessed at the next quarterly board meeting, the deadlines for which are as follows:

March board meeting – 12th February (17:00hrs)
