Are you a filmmaker based in Wales and under the age of 25? Want to be part of a truly European film festival in Wales?
This September sees the launch of a brand new film festival in Wales celebrating the work of young filmmakers. Wicked:16 will take place in multiple locations across North East Wales from September 21st -24th and includes screenings, workshops, masterclasses and events. Aimed at young filmmakers under 25, Wicked:16 is also part of Europe’s Youth Cinema Network. To this end, Wicked:16 will be a truly European festival, inviting young filmmakers from across the Youth Cinema Network’s member festivals in Europe to share learning and network with Welsh filmmakers. We’ll be announcing full programme details over the coming months and launching the Wicked:16 website which will include details of all screenings, workshops and how to get involved.
One of our key objectives is to showcase young Welsh talent and we’re now looking for short films from young Welsh filmmakers under the age of 25 for the inaugural Wicked:16 Film Festival competition. There are several categories and age groups for entry. Awards will be made for age groups 6-12, 13-18, and 19-25, and there are also primary and secondary school categories. Submitted films can be in the form of documentaries, animation, fiction, freestyle and school.
Application forms in Welsh and English are available to download here and the closing date is 27th June. Entry is free. Full details of how to enter are on the form but if you have any questions then you can email us email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Best of luck and we look forward to seeing you in North Wales in September.
