Carmarthen Bay Film Festival is all about encouraging and supporting independent film and cinema here in Wales the UK and Internationally.
My interest in making film started when I began researching my grandmothers cousin. His name was Gareth Hughes and he was Wales' very first silent Hollywood film star. I made a documentary about him and met and interviewed some of his friends and family in the US.
So I suppose its his fault that I had the idea to start a festival in the first place! And what better place than his birth place of Llanelli here in Wales.
Many festival are quick to take film makers money but don't guarantee to screen their film.
If you submit a film with us we will screen it! Providing of course it falls within our festival specs.
Independent Film makers put a lot of time and money into their projects. So I think it only fair once they have entered and paid, to screen their film.
We also give time at the end of each film for a short Q& A between the audience and film maker
It's all about fairness
Our is motto ‘This festival is honest’
The festival is and will always be, a champion of independent film!
