Cuts Watch #80: UK film industry takes half of DCMS cuts

18 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

The future of the major British Film Institute project on London’s Southbank is threatened by the withdrawal of £45 million of government funding, as Richard wrote yesterday. As architect’s journal BD reports, the international competition for the design of the centre was launched earlier this year, and a great deal of work has already been done on the project.

The BFI has issued a statement highlighting their concerns that more than half of the DCMS cuts are to come from the film industry.
