Bend It Like Betws is a 5 minute film facilitated by our Film and Drama Development departments and made by children at Betws Primary School as part of the First Light Pilot Award Scheme. First Light aims to encourage 5 to 18 year olds to make their own films with the professional support of adult film makers.
Bend It Like Betws was shot during snow blizzards in Betws and follows the story of Lily, a 10 year old girl who loves football. Her dad is the Under 12’s Coach and the local Ice-Cream Man and has old-fashioned ideas; he doesn’t think that girls would be interested in or any good at playing football. When the star player is taken ill from eating too much ice-cream, Lily’s dad has to rethink his ideas.
