WATCH Ysgol Bro Dinefwr pupils Taran and Joseph who wrote, directed and edited ‘The Language of Cymraeg’ being presented with the Best Film award by actor Stephen Merchant.

The film featured 16 pupils from the Carmarthenshire school.

Receiving their awards, Taran and Joseph said a massive thank you to Into Film and Into Cymru, also thanking members of staff and the cast of 16, “the most amazing people on earth” who “made it to every lunchtime to do such a great film… also an opportunity to show off the skills that Ysgol Bro Dinefwr has in the creative industry.

“’The Language of Cymraeg’ truly demonstrates to our generation that the Welsh language will never die. It will always be a part of us, whether we can speak it or not.”

Non Stevens, Head of Into Film Cymru, said: “Bro Dinefwr’s success with their film ‘The Language of Cymraeg’ clearly demonstrates the value of integrating film into cross-curricular provision in creative and innovative ways. Here are pupils who have deepened their knowledge and understanding of a specific subject, whilst also harnessing new, invaluable skills and having a great time whilst doing so! Into Film Cymru would like to congratulate Bro Dinefwr and all those who were nominated this year. There’s clearly a bright future for filmmaking in Wales.”
