Welcome to the International Media Festival of Wales (IMF of Wales).

This is an exciting industry festival created by the team behind the highly successful BAFTA British Short Film Competition and BAFTA Cymru qualifying Carmarthen Bay Film Festival.

Our aim is to celebrate the very best of today's content creators, programme and media makers, media related and documentary photography and writing talent here in Wales and from around the world

It is our hope that IMF of Wales will provide an ideal opportunity to network and rub shoulders with the right people, the ones that matter— experienced practitioners and educators in their field, people who know what they're talking about.

The International Media Festival of Wales is not just about getting your project seen or read; it's about you! We want to help you get noticed.

During the festival there will be screenings, exhibitions, seminars, and more.
