Funding for Films cut due to Olympics

Screen Daily – News

The UK Film Council is facing a $33m (£22m) cut in lottery funding over the next five years as money is diverted away from film to pay for the London Olympics. The cuts will mean an expected 15% reduction in the amount of lottery money available to British film – a drop of around $6.5m (£4.4m) a year.

And note the running costs of UKFC, FYI
