For those that may not have heard, the UK Film council is under threat of closure after having its funding cut. The UK Film Council has done many great things for the industry since its inception in 2000. We now have the highest cinema attendance in 7 years, UK film exports are also the highest in 7 years, and inward investment in the industry has doubled from 2008 to now.
It’s likely the closure will have an impact on jobs and funding for film production in the UK, so if you are concerned about the effects this will have on you and your industry, you can voice it online. There are two independent petitions that have been set-up, one on Facebook and one on the Go Petition site, so you can have your say and lend support to the British film industry.
