Less cash, fewer movies, meltdown: how Brexit may affect British film

24 June 2016 7:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The European Union contributes large sums to help keep the UK’s film sector healthy – what does the future hold if this funding disappears?

Within hours of the referendum result, film industry leaders in the UK were predicting disaster, with Michael Ryan, the chairman of the Independent Film and Television Alliance, saying the vote had “just blown up our foundation”. “We no longer know how our relationships with co-producers, financiers and distributors will work,” he said. “This is likely to be devastating for us.”

Cannes: E.U. Digital Plans Make European Consumers ‘Worse Off Over All,’ New Report Suggests

15 May 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Not just Europe’s film and TV industries but E.U. consumers would suffer substantially if the European Commission presses ahead with plans to push for a unified digital market across Europe, a new report, presented Sunday at the Cannes Festival, contends.

The 99-page study, commissioned and funded by industry players in Hollywood and Europe, comes after a year of wrangling between them and the European Commission over the European Union’s plans to push for a unified digital market.

Announced May 8, 2015, the EU’s Digital Single Market strategy aims to ease cross-border access of online content in one EU country by citizens in another. One underlying assumption is that broader access would benefit consumers.

Nominations for the Motion Picture Sound Editors’ 63rd annual Golden Reel Awards have been revealed, with “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Martian,” “The Revenant” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” leading the way on the film side with three nominations apiece. “Game of Thrones” came out on top in the TV categories with a trio of mentions as well.
