“The British Film Industry: Elitist, Deluded or Dormant?

Tweetable Logline:
The documentary that Great Britain does not want you to see as it exposes the inner truth about The British Film Industry!

Elevator Pitch:
A documentary with a realistic look at the state of The British Film Industry from a grassroots perspective on how public funds are used and what films are produced; the cultural effect as well as the economical effect this has on a country compared to its’ European counterparts. The responsibility and qualifications of screen agencies and the uneven playing field of market share is exposed by not only grassroots filmmakers but also Hollywood and British film legends like Sir Ben Kingsley, Ken Loach, Sir Alan Parker, Lord David Puttnam, Mike Hodges, Stephen Frears and many more.

Production Team:

Producer/Director Robin Dutta
Producer Director Vinod Mahindru

About the Production: Sick of seeing the same things over and over again? How can an audience have choice when the same film is played in several screens? When it comes to film finance in the UK and the lack of choice there is a more sinister and dark reason why the options are limited. The catalyst for us film makers was when the UK Film Council closed : we discovered who it really was serving, the icing on the cake was the Government review of the film industry which skimmed over addressing the real issues.

Current Status: In Post Production trying to raise completion finance, for grading, sound mixing, archive clearance and legal fees
