Creative director Alan Yentob said at The Media Festival Arts sponsored by Broadcast, that The question is which organisation has the skills to operate these funds.
Is there an organisation that can be remodelled without putting in extra resource? The BBC is definitely involved in this discussion. UK culture secretary Jeremy Hunt also attended the festival and was highly critical of the UKFC as it spent 24% of its annual budget on administration, and that the £3 million should be given directly to filmmakers instead. The UK Film industry summit was also held yesterday with Culture minister Ed Vaizey to help formulate a final decision on future government support for filmmaking. The BFI, The Arts Council, Shepperton and Pinewood Studios were among the invitees.
