Film Hub Wales and partners announce cinema at Eisteddfod Maes

Film Hub Wales has teamed with other key Welsh film organisations for a week of screenings, premieres, masterclasses and more at this year’s Eisteddfod Maes in Abergavenny.

The “Sinemaes” tent will pop up in the drama village area of the Maes from 30th July – 6th August. The programme will include screenings from the National Screen and Sound Archive, new feature films from Ffilm Cymru Wales and S4C, masterclasses and workshops.

FHW’s Strategic Hub Manager Hana Lewis says, “With Chapter as our Film Hub Lead Organisation, our partners and Film Hub Wales members, we’re delighted to work together to bring a diverse film programme to the 2016 Eisteddfod for the first time. Audiences can anticipate exciting film events that celebrate our rich cultural heritage and showcase home-grown Welsh talent. From rural archive to live music mash-up, we’re aiming to offer something special on the Maes.”

The project is led by BAFTA Cymru in partnership with Film Hub Wales, Chapter, Into Film, Ffilm Cymru Wales, The Royal Television Society, Wales Screen, BFI Net.Work, ITV Cymru Wales, S4C and TAC.
