Save the UK Film Council sign now

"Since its creation the UK Film Council has been the cornerstone of the British film industry and the funder of most of the big cultural film initiatives – we have backed more than 900 films, shorts and features, entertained more than 200 million people and helped to generate approximately £700 million at the box-office worldwide"

The above is from the website of the UK Film Council.

The UK Film Council was founded in 2000. Since its creation the UK's core film industry has increased its contribution to our economy by 50% to £4.3 billion, and directly provides jobs for almost 44,000 people.

Attacking cultural spending in the face of economic hardship is short-sighted at the best of times, but unlike financial black holes such as the 2012 Olympics the UK Film Council represents an extremely wise investment by the last government. Every £1 invested by the UK Film Council generates £5 in box office revenues, and contributes to our reputation as a world leader in the field of contemporary cinema.

Please show your support for our superb film industry by signing the petition below and following the campaign at Best For Film, an independent cinema website helping to co-ordinate our efforts.

NB you can also show your support for the campaign on Facebook.

Petition:
We, the undersigned, believe the UK Film Council to be a vital cultural resource and call upon Jeremy Hunt to rescind his department's decision to close it.
