A WELSH film festival screened over 70 award-winning short movies made by young people across the world.

The Wicked Wales Film Festival saw acting, cartoons and sketches by directors and producers aged six up to 26-years-old from a total of 21 countries, covering a wide range of important and interesting topics.

They were judged by a panel of 30 young people over the course of the 5th annual festival from Friday, October 30 to Sunday, November 1.

It opened with the comedy Matthew Parnell Show, featuring actors with learning disabilities from the Hijinx Theatre, followed by a Saturday highlight interview with Darth Vader and Harry Potter actor Spencer Wilding who will talk about his acting journey.

All films can be viewed on the Wicked Wales Film Festival’s Youtube channel for two weeks following the event.

Rhiannon Hughes, festival director and Rhyl Little Theatre volunteer, said: “In these difficult times we are delighted to offer our festival to a wider audience.

“The films are exciting, funny, thought provoking, and inspiring, a wonderful way to raise the spirits at this time.”

Wicked Wales Film also runs a pop-up community cinema out of Rhyl Little Theatre, where it has an office run by young volunteers.
