CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
4 - 6 JUNE
BBC Cymru Fyw marked the centenary of the death of iconic Welsh poet Hedd Wyn by publishing a package of truly original content. Using the very latest film-making technology, a pioneering short film combined binaural sound for the first time in Welsh with creative 360° footage to transport viewers directly into the stunning landscape of the poet’s beloved Snowdonia. The film can be experienced in Welsh and English.
Cymru Fyw also published a mixed media long-form piece taking a compelling new look at Hedd Wyn's tragic race against time to win the Chair at the 1917 National Eisteddfod.
