PRODUCTION

RICHARD PARKS: CAN I BE WELSH AND BLACK?

We’re very proud of this film for ITV Cymru Wales, in which Richard Parks, former Welsh Rugby International, multiple world record adventurer, and BAFTA Cymru nominated broadcaster presents a powerful, personal and at times poignant look at what it means to be Welsh and Black in today’s Wales. It features interviews with people like Ryan Giggs, actor Mali Ann Rees, Health Minister Vaughan Gething, Prof. Charlotte Williams and grime artists Mace The Great and Sonny Double 1.

It aired on the 27th October 2020 on ITV Cymru Wales, and is now available online here. Here’s the IMDB page, and the write up in Broadcast, and you can click on the image below for the ITV press release:

THE POINT

We’re currently distributing our award winning short film, TWEAKS, a highly personal, singular and topical film about mental health written and directed by Jasper Warry. It stars acting legend Simon Callow (Four Weddings & A Funeral, A Room With A View, Shakespeare In Love) alongside comedian and actor Dan Skinner (AKA: Angelos Epithemiou and star of Notes on Blindness & High-Rise) and rising star Nicola Wren (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword).

Shorts TV Poster

It’s been licensed for global distribution by Shorts TV across their TV and SVOD channels (it will be available at the end of this year after the festival run) – Shorts TV also theatrically distribute the Academy Award nominated short films each year, so Tweaks is in great company. Tweaks has been selected for the following films festivals so far:
