Creative Wales Production Funding is a discretionary scheme delivered via the Economy Futures Fund, where public funding is used to support the growth of Wales as a destination for the production of world class content. The funding will support Welsh based production and games development companies who are looking to develop productions intended for international audiences. It will also be used to attract high-end inward investment companies capable of boosting the local economy and leaving a significant skills legacy in Wales.
