The Film Agency For Wales has added three new board members. They are journalist/producer Alison James, THINKFilm International's Will Machin and Welsh media studies lecturer Cath Davies.

The appointments were announced by Agency chairman Peter Edwards.

Edwards said: 'The first 18 months of the life of the Film Agency has been an incredibly successful and intense period with more than seven feature films in production. We are incredibly fortunate to benefit from a Board who are committed to shaping the future of film development, production, education and exhibition in Wales and welcome Will, Cath and Alison to the team.'

The Film Agency for Wales is funded by the Arts Council of Wales, the UK Film Council and the Welsh Assembly Government, via Creative Business Wales.
