We're delighted to announce that Welsh actor Celyn Jones has joined Mark Cousins and Michael Sheen in becoming our latest Into Film Ambassador.

At a Q&A screening of his latest film Set Fire To The Stars at Coleg Cambria in Wrexham, Anglesy-born Celyn expressed his excitement at playing one of Wales' most famous sons in Dylan Thomas, and at the state of the film industry in Wales at the moment.

It's a very exciting time for film in Wales and I'm thrilled to be part of it and honoured to be made an Into Film Ambassador. The work Into Film achieves and delivers is very exciting and essential in developing new voices for Welsh Film, from the building of emotional literacy through their after school film clubs to the strengthening of self identities through their film making opportunities. I genuinely see this as an opportunity for me to plug straight into a creative mainframe of Welsh film.
