- Nuclear, Cadi and The Toll are to go into production later this year

Cinematic greenlights three features
Director Catherine Linstrum, whose Nuclear has been greenlit

Ffilm Cymru Wales’ Cinematic scheme has greenlit three feature-film projects. Feature debutant writer-director Catherine Linstrum’s Nuclear is a supernatural thriller set in a small village under the shadow of a nuclear power station, where a toxic family with a combustible past must face the ghosts that threaten their future. Linstrum, whose writing credits include Dreaming of Joseph Lees and California Dreamin’ [+see also:

, has co-written the script with David John Newman, while Stella Nwimo will produce. The three had previously collaborated on the short film Things That Fall from the Sky

Produced by Roger Williams, written by Siwan Jones and set to be directed by Lee Haven Jones, Cadi is a contemporary Welsh-language horror, set in the beautiful yet brutal landscape of Snowdonia, about a young woman returning home under mysterious circumstances. Cadi will be the feature debut by this team that has experience in Welsh-language television, including Alys, Tir and 35 Diwrnod.

Written by Edinburgh International Film Festival Talent Lab alumnus Matt Redd, produced by Vaughan Sivell and to be directed by BAFTA Cymru-nominated Ryan HooperThe Toll is a darkly comic thriller about a toll-booth operator with a past that is rapidly catching up with him.

The three projects are now in pre-production, with principal photography due to commence later this year. 

Ffilm Cymru Wales’ Adam Partridge said, “Choosing just three films from such a high-quality crop of projects was a difficult decision, but those we’ve selected reflect the distinctive and diverse voices and visions that talent from Wales has to offer.”

The Cinematic scheme is financed through a partnership with the BFI and S4C, with additional support from Fields Park Media Partners and Warner Music Supervision.

Previous films produced through Cinematic include Craig Roberts’ Just Jim [+see also:
