Cuts Watch #203: Spielberg’s company defends UK Film Council
Stephen Spielberg’s production company DreamWorks is the latest name to join the campaign save the UK Film Council. The company has written to Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt:
“We need assurance that the expertise, location familiarity, 24 hour access, consultation support of the UKFC will remain.”
As we have reported previously a growing list of famous names is calling on the government to reverse the decision to close the Council. Other new names include Ken Loach, Mike Leigh, Christopher Hampton and Christian Colson (producer of Slumdog Millionaire).
