If you would like to show your support for the UK Film Council, which is due to be scrapped by the government in the face of the economic crisis, sign this petition at GoPetition.com. The following statement is taken from the UK Film Council’s website

\r\n“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.”
