Inquiry into Film and Major Television Production in Wales

Ffilm Cymru Wales welcomes the publication of the National Assembly for Wales’ Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee report on their Inquiry into Film and Major Television Production in Wales.

We value the significant input and insights from organisations and individuals across the Welsh screen sector, and appreciate the thoroughness of the Committee’s inquiry. We also look forward to working with Welsh Government and Creative Wales as we continue to develop and sustain a strong and collaborative film industry for Wales.

Prof. Ruth McElroy, Chair of Ffilm Cymru, comments “We welcome the inquiry’s emphasis on building a cohesive skills strategy that is both inclusive and strategic in marrying the ambitions of local talent with proven sectoral need. Ffilm Cymru has developed innovative training programmes such as Foot in the Door that open up the screen sector to people in Wales who have never dreamed of being able to be part of this exciting industry. We stand ready to work with partners to ensure a strong and sustainable talent base for new and established workers in the industry. Wales has amazing screen stories to tell. Everyone in Wales needs the opportunity to be part of that story.”
