Congratulations to another title from our catalogue, Welsh series Lifelines (Cyswllt), nominated at Celtic Media Festival 2021 in the Short Drama section!

Cyswllt was commissioned by S4C, and aired weekly during the first lockdown of 2020, providing a snapshot of life during a pandemic, illustrating the effect of lockdown on individuals and families. Shot over three weeks in real pandemic time, using laptops and mobile phones, reflecting the changes occurring in our lifes as they were happening, the series interweaves the stories of family and friends when what it means to be human is being challenged and redefined.

The brilliant Welsh-speaking cast includes, among others, Mark Lewis Jones (The Crown, Star Wars), Hannah Daniel (Hinterland, Keeping Faith and Holby City) and Aneirin Hughes (Hinterland).

Celtic Media Festival was first held in 1980 and since then it has continued to support the various forms of media in the languages and cultures of the Celtic nations and regions. It is an itinerant festival, which has taken place in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man. The festival will take place from 7 to 9 September and will be held fully online, with a full programme of screenings, conferences, interviews and the traditional Torc Awards for Excellence.
