Meet the Beacons Makers
Ffilm Cymru, BFI NETWORK Wales & BBC Wales celebrated the broadcast of a selection of our Beacons short films with a filmmaker Q&A.
In September 2020 we were joined by some of the writer-directors that made short films through our Beacons scheme to delve into how their films were successfully pitched, the commissioning process and the experience of making a funded short. The event was aimed at aspiring and early career filmmakers as well as those with an interest in short film.
Joining the Q&A were
- Clare Sturges, writer-director of The Arborist
- Efa Blosse-Mason, writer-director of Cwch Deilen (Leaf Boat)
- Sion Thomas, writer-director of Dirt Ash Meat
- Hannah Daniel and Georgia Lee, writer-directors of Burial
- Christina Macaulay, Commissioning Editor for BBC Cymru Wales
