Ffilm Cymru Wales crosses artforms with new multimedia fund

Ffilm Cymru Wales are unlocking the cross-platform potential of Welsh film with their new multi-media fund.

The pilot scheme aims to explore the additional value of intellectual property (IP) across artforms such as music, theatre, gaming and literature, as well as encourage Welsh filmmakers to consider how their IP can reach a wider audience.

Ffilm Cymru Wales’ recent multi-platform successes include Gruff Rhys’s latest musical movie adventure American Interior, which told his epic story across a film, a book, an album and an app, as well as Pembrokeshire writer-producer Vaughan Sivell’s cult favourite Third Star, the film script of which has just been published as a book with exclusive content including behind-the-scenes photos, a production blog and an interview with the writer.

The Cross Media Fund will make available £50,000 across up to three new or existing projects. Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate how a cross-platform campaign will add value to their exciting ideas, and where film is not the principal component, how the project will benefit the Welsh film sector.

Hannah Thomas, Head of Creative Sector Development at Ffilm Cymru Wales, says: “We are committed to developing skills that can be transferred across different art forms, and are keen to see how audiences can migrate from film to other platforms. With this in mind, we are excited to be piloting a Cross Media Fund, and I would hope that this is something we will be able to grow and continue.”
