Putting the British back in the BFI

In today’s Ministerial Statement Ed Vaizey says the BFI will have a “remit to support the film industry in the Nations and the regions” which raises as many questions as it answers.  In a similar vein Film London will ” be entrusted with a UK wide remit to promote the UK as the best place to invest in film.”  Announcing a formal consultation “to consider how to build a more sustainable film industry and how to develop the distribution and exhibition of British films in the UK.”  It is imperative that Scotland’s distinctive needs and aspirations are fully heard in that process and that we retain the capacity to formulate Scotish solutions for Scottish problems.
