sex wales and anarchy film 2009

The 1st Sex, Wales & Anarchy Film (SWA Film) Festival will take place on the 4th of September 2010. After a good turnout in previous years we have decided to extend our film track to allow a greater scope of films and filmmakers. Our aim is to show the diversity of films, talent and ideas found in Wales. However you don’t have to be Welsh to take part, as long as there is some relevant link to Wales past, present or future. We are looking for imaginative and diverse films that take the themes of Sex, Wales and Anarchy and use them in interesting ways.

The schedule will be posted in the next few days but the first event to be announced is a panel with James Moran and Gareth David-Lloyd on Girl Number 9.

James Moran

James Moran is a British screenwriter for television and film, whose first produced work came as a result of a UK Sci-Fi Channel short film competition, when he had his winning script ‘Cheap Rate Gravity’ made into a short film. His first feature-length screenplay was ‘Severance’, a horror movie starring Laura Harris, Danny Dyer, Toby Stephens, Claudie Blakley, Andy Nyman and Babou Ceesay.

He recently wrote Girl Number 9, a 6-part web thriller starring Gareth David-Lloyd, Joe Absolom and Tracy-Ann Oberman, and directed the final 3 episodes. The series was nominated for 5 Streamy Awards, and has been picked up for worldwide distribution by ContentFilm.

James has had short stories published in the Big Finish Short Trips collections Transmissions and Christmas Around the World, the 2009 and 2010 Doctor Who Storybooks, and Torchwood: Consequences. He currently has several movies and TV shows in various stages of development, including Cockneys Vs Zombies, a horror movie which starts shooting in 2010.
