International Media Festival
of Wales

We are a brand new festival created by the team behind the BAFTA Short Film and BAFTA Cymru qualifying Carmarthen Bay Film Festival

We aim to celebrate the very best of today's contentcreators, programme and media makers, media-related and documentary photography, and writing talent both here in Wales and around the world.  

It is the ideal opportunity to network and rub shoulderswith the right people, the ones that matter—experienced practitioners andeducators in their field. These people know what they're talking about.  

IMF of Wales is delivered in partnership with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, and the two-day festival will include networking opportunities, an immersive experience, and hands-on workshops with the latest camera equipment.
