About Us

Carmarthen Bay Film Festival has gone from strength to strength over the years.From our first festival in 2012, we have gone from 35 submissions to well over 650 from 52 different countries for our 2018 festival. Not only have the submissions increased over the years but the number of filmmakers and festival patrons attending has as well.
We have had filmmakers flying in from the US, Holland, Italy, France and many parts of the UK. The number of festival partners has also grown with Stradey Park Hotel,BAFTA Cymru, RTS Wales, S4C, University of Wales Trinity St. David, Felin Foel Brewery and many more. The festival is now a BAFTA Cymru/Wales qualifying which means that any film screened during the festival and made here in the Wales is eligible to apply to be considered for a BAFTA Cymru award.

We are also very proud to have the name of John Hefin associated with the festival.
With the John Hefin Award for lifetime achievement in film, television or theatre. And we are very pleased that Beti George accepted this award during our 2018 awards gala.
