Britflicks Podcast host Stuart Wright talks with co-directors Robin Dutta and Vinod Mahindru about their documentary WHO KILLED BRITISH CINEMA?
WHO KILLED BRITISH CINEMA? is a documentary about the real state of the British film industry in relation to UK structures past, present and currently for the future.
This film exposes the shocking truths about the UK Governments’ will to grow an indigenous British film industry, the legacy and testament of the now closed UK Film Council (UKFC), the current British Film Institute and the new Creative England. Purely in respect of the public money spent, this film challenges the notion that art is unquantifiable, highlights the question of the ‘jobs for the boys’ culture that exists in Britain, and questions the serious needs of having our own indigenous film culture that truly reflect our lives in Britain and which can be sold all over the World.
The lack of any vertically integrated studio set up in Britain, the input from current broadcasters alongside the virtual print fees for independent film makers are just some of the arguments put forward in this analysis.
