The Welsh Government’s internal agency, Creative Wales, seeks to maximise the Welsh benefit of all film and TV productions it supports, whether that support is logistical or financial in nature. The Wales Screen team within Creative Wales assists productions by applying the knowledge, expertise, and tools (by managing and maintaining a database) to signpost production companies to utilise crew, and showcase locations across Wales in accordance to production requirements.
Any contract of funding by Creative Wales for a film or TV production contains clear agreed targets for Welsh spend, which the applicant must achieve and evidence before the award is issued. A clear definition of ‘Welsh spend’ or ‘Direct Welsh Expenditure’ is included in any agreement, ensuring that applicants make best efforts to contract the services of Wales based cast, crew and supply chain companies in order to satisfy our terms. Should applicants fail to meet targeted Welsh spend, Creative Wales reserves the right to reduce or fail to issue the award accordingly.
