Film & TV in Wales

May the 4th be with you! Its Star Wars day but did you know the Millenium falcon was made in Pembroke Dock and Welshman, Richard Marquand, directed the Retun of the Jedi in 1983. He was the only person outside America to direct Star Wars until 2016. 

Wales connection to the big screen is impressive and movie producers choose Wales more than you might think. Our scenic landscapes have provided a setting for many Hollywood blockbusters. Take a look!  

But it’s not all about the locations. Wales has a number of world class studios and we have a great history of producing television shows that appeal to audiences around the world, such as the longest-running science fiction television show, Doctor Who pictured above.
