“We’re breaking records every year and it’s testament to the explosion of creativity and output in the creative content and media sector in the Celtic regions. Each year the quality and quantity of productions submitted through the Call for Entries gets bigger and better. As a festival, we’re constantly innovating, and it’s exciting to be bringing the 2018 festival to Llanelli in Wales for the first time.”
