To ask the Scottish Executive how much it expects the UK Film Council to distribute in Scotland in (a) 2008-09, (b) 2009-10, (c) 2010-11, (d) 2011-12 and (e) 2012-13.
Answered by Linda Fabiani (10/12/2008): Scottish Screen has advised that the UK Film Council cannot provide the particular information requested. The UK Film Council provides funding both directly, through targeted funding schemes in areas such as development, production, distribution and exhibition, and indirectly via funded partners such as Skillset and the British Film Institute. In the current financial year, Skillset has awarded £360,911.08 to date in grants to Scotland-based organisations and individuals. In the first nine months of the current financial year £855,818.25 of targeted funding, which is application based, was awarded by the UK Film Council to Scotland.
The UK Film Council announced last year that it had allocated £1.88 million, over three years to 2010-11, to support the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Scottish Screen and the UK Film Council work together to support the film industry in Scotland, often supporting the same films and projects.
