The financial 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.

Steve 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."

Film 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.

"The Government wants Britain to become a hive of film making activity and a centre for expertise and excellence." Anderson Added.
