Insights UK Parliament Culture, Media and Sport Committee extends response deadline to its inquiry into British film and high-end TV


In July 2023, Parliament’s Culture, Media and Sport Committee launched an inquiry into the challenges faced by the British film and high-end TV industry. The inquiry seeks to investigate how to enhance and maintain the UK as a global destination for film and TV production in light of recent financial challenges faced by UK cinemas, the strikes by US actors and writers and the rise of artificial intelligence. The Committee seeks input on challenges to overseas investment in the sector, challenges facing UK independent film production, steps to incentivise film and high-end TV production in the UK, issues facing the UK’s film exhibition sector, promotion of the UK’s screen heritage, ensuring a strong skills pipeline, the risks and benefits of AI, and what changes are needed to ensure the UK industry is supporting diversity and sustainability.
