Film Policy Review Opens

The Film Policy Review panel has opened a detailed independent survey to collect views on where film policy needs to be changed, to better support the UK film sector.
Chaired by former Culture Secretary Lord Chris Smith, the review panel is made up of eight members with each leading on a specific aspect of film policy.
“We want to hear from everyone involved in UK films,” said Lord Smith.
“Film-makers, distributors, audiences and experts can all offer a useful perspective on how Government policy can help our film industry grow.”
Objectives of the Review include: Identifying obstacles preventing the British film industry being more successful; Determining how best to set policy directions for the increased Lottery funding; Identifying ways to develop and retain UK talent: and increasing audience demand for film, including independent British film.
The Review is expected to report to Creative industries Minister Ed Vaizey by the end of the year.
