“In the digital age, UK film has the potential to flourish as never before. Digital technology is starting to transform the way in which film and moving images are financed, produced, distributed and consumed. Many of the historical barriers which have made it difficult for audiences to gain access to a wider range of film are beginning to tumble. The UK Film Council recognises that it needs to take a lead. With the help of our strategic partners, we intend to act as a strong advocate for change by putting in place policies and funding measures which encourage and support innovation.
This plan represents the outcome of energetic consultation with our stakeholders, as well as detailed discussions over many months by the UK Film Council’s Board and executives.”
