Cineworld Cardiff and BAFTA Cymru partnership

25 February 2015

BAFTA Cymru refurbished panoramic bar welcomed guests to a special event on February 23 to re-launch partnership.

Cineworld Cardiff and BAFTA Cymru have announced the renewal of their partnership, which will benefit members and guests.

The partnership will consolidate the existing partnership, offering public guests and BAFTA members use of the newly-designed BAFTA Cymru bar and offering BAFTA Cymru members a regular programme of celebratory screenings and inspiring events.

To celebrate the new partnership and look forward to the year ahead, BAFTA Cymru and the Iris Prize Festival hosted a joint preview screening and Q&A session on Monday 23 February.

The event, supported by Champagne Taittinger, Ethos, Spectrum and Gorilla, offered guests a preview screening of the series finale of the acclaimed BBC production Wolf Hall, which was partially shot on location at some of Wales’ finest castles. The screening was followed by a Q&A session with Rebecca Pearson, Assistant Location Manager (The Theory of Everything, Les Misérables) and Josephine Wilkinson, Art Department (Peaky Blinders, The Railway Man); chaired by Berwyn Rowlands.

The event also offered a preview of the new Iris Prize short film, Followers, which was selected from amongst over 12,000 entries for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival last month.
