Rebecca co-ordinates Arts Connect’s film network, including our film ambassadors programme. She searches out new opportunities for children and young people to be involved in film and advises how organisations can offer film and digital as part of Arts Award. She also works with agencies including Into film and the BFI to ensure joined up thinking on film education and training.
Rebecca works in a freelance capacity, dividing her time between Arts Connect and her Awards Manager role at BAFTA Cymru. She is also an active film-maker and producer and has her own production company, Edge 21, based in Cardiff. She is passionate about the need to open up the film industry for young people; for many, a trip to the Cinema or a TV drama will be their first memorable cultural experience, and a career in film is a serious proposition.
Rebecca is also a dinosaur buff and happiest when searching for fossils on Wales’ south coast.
