Ffilm Cymru unveils incoming CEO (exclusive)


Ffilm Cymru, the development agency for Welsh film, has named Lee Walters as its incoming CEO, taking up the position from November.

Walters joins from Media Cymru, an organisation set up to drive economic growth in the Welsh media sector, where he was a senior producer and funding manager.

Prior to that, he was senior change manager at BBC Cymru Wales, where he was instrumental in delivering the new headquarters to the centre of Cardiff. In 2020 he joined Cardiff University as programme manager for Clwstwr, an innovation programme supported by both Welsh government and Westminster that supported companies and freelancers to create new products, services, and experiences for the screen.

Pauline Burt stepped down as CEO after 17 years in September, with producer and Ffilm Cymru board member Uzma Hasan stepping up as interim CEO.
