Film in the English Regions

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The defining feature of the development of the regional scale of the British film industry since 2000 has been the emergence of a different kind of institutional intervention geared towards nurturing regional film industries and regional film cultures. This essay looks at the regional screen agencies (RSAs) that have been established in the English regions following the UK Film Council’s review of film industry in England, and considers the reasons behind their creation and their functions. Though these developments have yet to yield long-term results to the British film industry, they indicate that the traditional core-periphery model of the film industry is being superseded by a new hierarchical relationship between different spatial scales and a new competitive relationship between institutions at the same scale.
