WOW has been celebrating the riches of world cinema since 2001, bringing an eclectic, intriguing, and moving selection of films from around the globe to cinemas across Wales. WOW presents a selection of the very best in world cinema – and sometimes a film from Wales too.
I had a great time at Sheffield DocFest, meeting up with a number of colleagues, making some new contacts and seeing a dozen films. This was the first time I had been to the DocFest and among my highlights were:
Only in west Wales could you go to a nomadic film festival that begins in the village hall, travels to a workers cottage, the pub, the old school and a mansion before ending with a dance party!
Curated through an open call, 'Bodies in Land' is bringing an international line up of artist, moving image, experimental and dance film to the north Pembrokeshire village of Abercych.
These images capture perfectly last night's joyous celebration of the best of Bollywood film at the Samaj Community Centre with Bollywood Brass Band. The event sold out over a week ahead and we must say a huge thank you to the centre's secretary Anoup Kerrai and all the volunteers involved at the centre who gave WOW and our sister project, the WOW Women's Film Club, such a warm welcome, making it a night to remember.
