This is what the film makers are saying about our festival

It was the first time I ever attended a Film Festival, eager and happy to meet all the team organising the event as much as the filmmakers attending.
I was not expecting to have my film 'Nain' selected, nominated and then finally awarded for the Gwobr John Hefin the Welsh Language Short Film Award! It came as a good surprise but also a bit of a 'shock'!

The Carmarthen Bay Film Festival is absolutely opened, transparent, friendly, featuring Top International Independent Films. Professionals from the Industry welcome you within the Top Class Venue, and it has really been good to meet filmmakers from around the world, it opens so many windows of inspiration...My motto...'Never give up on your dreams!'…

Superb communication from the festival at all stages of submission. Thrilled to have had our film 'Yours Accidentally' screened at Carmarthen Bay. Thank you so much. A highly recommended festival worthy of the submission fee.

.A great festival in lovely west Wales, U.K. I was delighted that my film 'Tooth Fairy' was nominated for best animation!
