Copper Coast Film is set in the heart of Swansea, Wales and is housed within UWTSD’s Swansea College of Art. The festival prides itself on showcasing the very best storytellers the world of film has to offer.

The categories are broad and we encourage all types of short film.

    The festival team were very nice and the communication was very good. I was very grateful that they choose to screen 'Lightning' and my only regret is that I couldn't be present at the award ceremony as I was travelling for work on that day, but I am sure it was a great event and super fun. Thank you!

    It is was terrible experience for me! They wrote my movie's name wrong at the first place. After my movie went to final they asked for wetransfer link to download it but when I sent they didn't even download it and I asked them again and resent it. Festival has a website which never been updated. It has logo of social media accounts at website but they also aren't active. I have been told that there will be live stream but at the end of the they it was canceled and I wasn't able to follow if my finalist movie got any award because there was no update on any platform about festival. I was really regret to send my film to it.
