23/07/2018 - The crissi in UK and Ireland Indie Films? Blog

The last month has seen the UK’s bfi and Ireland’s Dept of Culture, Heritage and Gaeltacht (DCHG) both publish plans for the film industry’s future. The bfi’s Commission on UK Independent Film focuses exclusively on this sector, while the DCHG Audio Visual Action Plan looks at the wider creative sector. However, what is striking is the similarities of both reports views of the challenges faced by independent film, and in many respects the same conclusions as to action which needs to be undertaken.

The blog focuses on the key conclusions and, in particular, the actions both see as essential to improving the situation for independent films going forward.  Actions which address key challenges facing film-makers across Europe, but have particular resonances in the UK & Ireland.
