injection into British film making dramatically
increased during 2000 with around half a billion
being invested into productions, the British Film
Council reports today. Harry Potter, 51st State
and Tomb Raider have all helped increase the levels
of cash invested into British UK film production.
Norris, the British Film Commissioner, said: "We
are delighted to see such a vast increase in revenue
for the British film community in the UK and proud
to see such a strong indication of the growing
international awareness of British film-making
talent found here."
Minister Janet Anderson also attributed the recent
introduction of tax incentives as a factor for
securing large levels of inward investment for
the film industry.
Government wants Britain to become a hive of film
making activity and a centre for expertise and
excellence." Anderson Added.
