It’s My Shout Awards 2024: Calling All Filmmaking Firecrackers!

Warning: This blog post may contain excessive enthusiasm, award show puns (we can’t help ourselves!), and enough Welsh pride to fill a dragon’s hoard. Reader discretion is advised (but seriously, stick around, it’s gonna be epic).

That’s right, folks! The velvet rope is down, the red carpet’s been unfurled (and hopefully not stained with spilled tea…looking at you, last year’s Best Documentary winner!), and the nominations are in for the It’s My Shout Awards 2024!

For the uninitiated: It’s My Shout Awards is basically the Oscars of the Welsh Filmmaking scene, but way cooler (because, well, Wales, duh). It’s a night to celebrate the rising stars, the maverick auteurs, the quirky geniuses who are pushing the boundaries of storytelling and making Wales a filmmaking powerhouse (with a hint of rain and sheep, of course).

So, what can you expect this year? Well, buckle up, buttercup, because we’ve got a night jam-packed with:

  • Awards galore: We’re talking Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (who spills popcorn on themselves the most convincingly?), and a whole bunch of other categories that’ll make your competitive spirit do a little jig.
  • Special Guests: We can’t reveal all our secrets yet (because, mystery!), but let’s just say you might see some faces you recognize from the silver screen (or maybe just really big tellies).
  • Enough after-party shenanigans to make even Ryan Reynolds blush: Okay, maybe not that much, but there will definitely be drinks, and enough networking opportunities to launch your career into the stratosphere.

But wait, there’s more! We’re also on the hunt for some amazing volunteers to help make the night run smoother than a freshly buttered leek. So, if you’ve got the organizational skills of Marie Kondo on a sugar rush and the charisma of a red carpet host who can charm a Dalek out of its shell (yes, that specific skill is surprisingly useful), then head over to our instagram @itsmyshoutltd and apply!

And of course, the most important part:

We can’t wait to celebrate Welsh filmmaking brilliance with you! In the meantime, keep calm and focus on that Oscar… er, It’s My Shout Award speech.

P.S. Follow us on social media for all the award show updates, behind-the-scenes shenanigans, and maybe even a glimpse of the red carpet fashion (hopefully no wardrobe malfunctions this year…fingers crossed!).
