UK executives back diversity quotas for tax incentives

10 June 2016 3:43 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Kate Harwood, Oona King among executives to express support for more regulation.

BFI board member Baroness Oona King and former BBC drama head Kate Harwood have backed recent calls for diversity quotas to be attached to the UK film and TV tax relief.

Speaking at Mbi’s Media Production Show in London during a session on gender equality, panellists including King, Euston Films managing director Harwood and War & Peace and The Awakening producer Julia Stannard expressed support for building quotas into the UK’s film and high end drama incentives.

At Screen and Broadcast’s Media Summit earlier this week Ken Loach producer Rebecca O’Brien suggested making tax credits dependent on “certain diversity boxes being ticked”. 

Former BBC head of drama Harwood said: “Rebecca’s [O’Brien’s] suggestion about tax breaks and diversity is such a good idea. I think it’s a bit of a no brainer.”

Stannard agreed: “Our industry is largely a freelance industry…There is »

Star Wars: what we learnt from Force Awakens’ deleted scenes

With the Star Wars Blu-ray now out, what do the deleted scenes tell us about Jj Abrams’ original vision for the movie?

Back in 1999, at the tender age of 21, some friends and I hopped on a plane and flew to Dallas, Texas to watch Star Wars Episode I. Global release dates weren’t as well co-ordinated as they are these days and faced with six weeks of waiting here in the UK whilst everyone stateside got to fill their boots, we made what seemed like the only real decision available to us at the time. Looking back, it was perhaps one of history’s grander acts of spoiler-avoidance, but the moment that will stay with me forever wasn’t the film itself - instead, it was the strange moments straight after.

My travelling companions and I stood around in the bright Texan sunshine, bloodless smiles plastered on our faces, »

Demonic Creatures and Chainsaws Revved Up For Scream Factory’s April Lineup!!

10 March 2016 3:05 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

We previously reported that the gang at Scream Factory are about to make the month of April an awesome one, with the 4/12 double feature of Anthony Perkins-led films Destroyer and Edge Of Sanity (link). Personally, that alone is reason enough to celebrate, but any respectable horror fan knows that the Sf crew likes to go big. Corin Hardy (the upcoming reboot of The Crow)’s The Hallow is arriving April 5th, with the tale of a man up against a demonic entity, loosened from the wilderness around it.  We had a short chat with Hardy last year, and it’s definitely enough to get genre fans excited for this Scream Factory/IFC Midnight team-up release.
