film council (or not) help

Discussion in 'Media studies' started by loulabelle1, Nov 21, 2011.

  1. Just wondering what we are supposed to tell our students. I know the film council no longer exists, although there is still a website for it. Does anyone know what it has been replaced by and whether filmmakers can still apply for money?

    If you look on the homepage of the UK Film Council website:
    From 1 April, the British Film Institute became the Lottery
    distributor for film in the UK, with responsibility for funding film
    development and production; training; distribution and exhibition;
    supporting film UK-wide; film certification, the Cultural Test and
    co-production; strategic development; industry research and statistics;
    and the MEDIA Desk UK. The role of the British Film Commission in
    encouraging inward investment work transfers to Film London.
