Netherlands filmmakers may have to go dutch

Interesting to see Dutch producers calling for new regional film funds as central funds are cut from €37m to €28m a year.  With a population of 16 million or so that’s still a healthy €1.75 per million of population compared to the UK’s roughly €1m though nothing like Denmark’s €10m per million, keeping the Danes way ahead as in so many other measures.  At around €3.5m (though due to rise to €4m by 2013 – see Creative Scotland CEO Andrew Dixon’s evidence to the Parliament’s Education and Culture Committee on 13th September) Scotland’s direct per capita spend is around €700K per million people (though with the UK Lottery and other film investment the combined total is pretty similar to the Netherlands.
