FOCUS Wales Film Festival Earns BAFTA Cymru Accreditation.

FOCUS Wales will also hold one of only eight festivals in Wales to achieve the coveted BAFTA Cymru accreditation.

Scheduled for 10th-11th May in Wrexham, FOCUS Wales Film Festival will now grant all films showcased in competition eligibility for a BAFTA Cymru Award nomination.

Film Festival Producer Robert Corcoran expressed his jubilation, stating, “Five years ago, our aspiration was to establish a globally acclaimed film festival in Wrexham, attracting top-tier emerging and established filmmakers from Wales and around the globe to showcase their work. This accreditation from BAFTA is a testament to the calibre of our program and jury. I couldn’t be prouder of our team.”

This year’s film festival, hosted at Coleg Cambria’s Theatr Ial, is sponsored by Creative Wales. In addition to film screenings, it offers an expanded short film competition, industry panels, feature films, and networking opportunities.

Headlining the festival is Celyn Jones’ poignant film The Almond and the Seahorse, starring Jones himself alongside Rebel Wilson and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Tickets for the film festival are available for purchase here.
