It is a sad day for British Cinema and film-lovers everywhere as news arrives that because of budget constraints, the UK Film Council will be axed. Whether it is the right/wrong thing to do politically I’ll leave to you. However, in the last ten years the UK Film Council has helped fund over 900 films, including “The Wind that Shakes the Barley”, “Man on Wire”, and “In the Loop”. In addition, they’ve provided funding for 240 digital movie screens across the UK, as well as multiple projects aimed at teaching children the basics of filmmaking. Here is hoping that the UK Film Council gets reborn into a sort of non-profit organization, but who knows. We may never quite know the amount of loss in terms of film as a result of this. We will never know what films “would have been” that will now not get the funding to be made.
