Wicked Wales Winners!

The girls have done it again!

We are delighted to announce that the Iris Prize winning film ‘I Feel Love’ by Ellie Davies and Carys Wiggins has again beaten off stiff competition to win the Wicked Wales International Youth Film Festival 2020 in the Secondary School category.

The film, which won the Iris Prize last October, was entered into the competition by the Iris Team, and reflects the positive, inclusive and diverse community that we have in Tonyrefail. Ellie & Carys are elated to have won and are “thrilled to hear their film is still making a difference in our society”.
