“The UK Film Council’s report; ‘Low and Micro-Budget Feature Film in the UK’, published in June 2008, provided a detailed overview of the production, distribution and exhibition of films with budgets of under £1m. The report focused upon qualitative and quantitative data on the sector. It did not (and was not asked) to make strategic recommendations.
The publication of the report did, however, provide the occasion to consider tactical or strategic options to address the issues raised by the report. The report was based on research that was inconclusive in respect to one key issue; whether there was a significant ‘bottleneck’ in launching films made on low or micro budgets that prevented them making their full contribution to the UK’s film culture.”
