Arts for All

Projects for all ages and abilties


Ffilmic is a community film competition and festival that happens annually in Llanfyllin during October and November. We challenge film makers to make a 5 minute film in just 10 days, with the opportunity to win awards and have their films screened at the local cinema.

We hope that Ffilmic encourages a passion and love for film culture and opens up the chance to explore and learn about moving image and how it can be used for artistic, political and enjoyment purposes.
