The project is a collaboration between Wicked Wales Film (www.wickedwales.com ) and the International Youth Media Summit organisation ( www.iyms.org ) based in Nepal. Wicked Wales Film runs the Wicked Wales International Youth Film Festival and IYMS brings together young filmmakers from all over the world to their annual summit meeting.
This year these two organisations have formed a partnership to run a pilot project to create 3webisodes from each partner. The 10-minute webisodes will be a celebration of each country, promoting their diverse cultures & languages. The films will be screened at a number of international events and uploaded onto the websites of the two partners.
IYMS work on a global stage as partners with the United Nations UN, UNICEF and UNESCO so we are delighted to be a part of this collaboration. Many of their previous films look at the global issues facing future generations. Their current webisode series is available for viewing at https://sanatione.iyms.org
This project has been made possible with financial support from Wales Arts International (www.wai.org.uk) and Wicked Wales Film funds.
The project aims to help raise the profile of Wales globally and provides an international opportunity
to showcase the work of emerging Welsh filmmakers. The focus will be on promoting aspects of
Wales from a young people’s perspective.
The 3 films chosen should promote Wales to a worldwide audience and offer an insight into our
culture, language & heritage.
Films can be non-dialogue, Welsh or English language & will be subtitled accordingly.
