|Title:||The UK film council and the ‘cultural diversity’ agenda|

|Abstract:||From May 2000 until its demise in 2011, the UK Film Council (UKFC) was the main film funding body in the United Kingdom. While many critics have analysed the economic successes and failures of individual films that it funded over this period, little has been written about its influence on the UK film industry more broadly. Of the handful of articles that have addressed this area, the question of the diversity of the UK film industry, and the UKFC’s alleged failure to make it more accessible, is a consistent theme, supported by damning data from Creative Skillset and the UKFC’s own reports, which suggest that in many areas the industry is even less diverse now than it was when the UKFC was first established.|
