Carmarthen Bay Film Festival is set in the heartland of Welsh film and television.The festival is held in the home town of Wales' very first Hollywood silent film star Gareth Hughes who was Kelvin Guy's, the festivals CEO and founder cousin.
The Festival is all about encouraging and supporting independent film and cinema here in Wales the UK and Internationally. Our 4th festival was a huge successes with over 200 films entered.The festival was once again held over 4 days at the 4 star Stradey Park Hotel,Llanelli,Wales.The festival was once again a big hit with the attending film makers who had travelled from LA Miami,Europe and many parts of the UK. The festivals audience was also very impressed with the diversity and quality of this years films with attendance rising from last years by over 100%.
Once again we were pleased to partner with RTS(Wales),S4C(Welsh language television channel),Sony, Pinnacle, Final Draft and the University of Wales. This festival is all about being open and fair with an independent judging panel made up of professional well respected film and television writers and critics . The festival is not about making vast amounts of money off the backs of film makers, but giving them the opportunity to have there films screened and judge fairly.
We operate as a not for profit community group. Which basically means all money from submissions and sponsorship goes towards making the festival bigger and better year on year.
For this festival to grow we do need the help of you the film maker to make and enter your film into our 2016 festival.
It's all about fairness Our is motto ‘This festival is honest’ The festival is and will always be, a champion of independent film!
