Welsh actor Michael Sheen has praised young Welsh film talent and urged more young people to get involved and tell their stories.
The hollywood actor spoke at the 'Into Film Awards' 2016, where pupils from a Welsh school scooped a prize for their animation film:
It's absolutely fantastic to see so much talent coming from Wales. I mean we know there's plenty of talent in Wales, but it's great to see it on display and being recognised, it's fantastic.
Students from a school in Merthyr Tydfil have scooped a national film award.
The pupils at Cyfarthfa Park Primary school won the award for Best Animation by 12s and under.
The award for their short animation 'Political Animals' was presented to them by actors Morfydd Clark and James Norton.
The Into Film Awards pay tribute to young people from across the UK who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in filmmaking and film reviewing.
We made an animation - we drew animals and recorded interviews about what we would do if we were Prime Minister.
It was just amazing seeing our film on the big screen.
It was a wonderful project – the children were really engrossed in it and worked so well as a team, it was lovely to see.
We didn’t think we’d win, we’re thrilled with the result.
We’ve had a fantastic day.
You can see their winning entry here.
Four Welsh schools have been nominated for national awards at the Into Film Awards 2016.
The awards are designed to celebrate young people's involvement in film and education and encourage the filmmakers of the future, as well as well as recognising teachers' use of film across the curriculum.
The Welsh nominees are:
- Cyfarthfa Park Primary School in Merthyr Tydfil, which has been nominated in Best Animation by 12s and Under.
- Rhymney Comprehensive in Caerphilly in Best Animation by 13s and Over.
- Alan Thomas-Williams, a teacher at Ysgol Treganna in Cardiff, nominated in the 'Teacher of the Year' category.
- 12 year-old Rhys, from Barry Comprehensive, is a nominee in the Review of the Year category for his review of Stanley Kubrik's classic 2001: A Space Odyssey.
All four will compete in their contested categories at the event on Tuesday March, 15 at London's Odeon Leicester Square.
Among those presenting Awards and attending the event will be Michael Sheen, Celyn Jones, Iwan Rheon and Morfydd Clark.
The young people are incredible ambassadors for the school, I am sure with such an impressive first attempt at animation a career in this industry may lay ahead for a number of the pupils.
Winners will be given the award and offered mentoring and professional support to help develop their involvement with the film industry.
