Royal Welsh Short Film Festival #1


When Covid-19 hit and all live music and theatre performances were forced to a halt, our students were faced with a very different challenge than what they've faced before: How can we bring art to audiences without performance? Through combining their fantastic minds, and quickly adapting to the new reality, the very first Royal Welsh Short Film Festival was born!

With three newly commissioned scripts from writers Simon Stephens, Moira Buffini and Simon Longman, these brand new films, DoveLove and Radiance, are a collaboration project from our actors, designers and technical theatre students who have worked so hard over the past few months to develop productions for screen rather than stage.
