Disaster For UK Film Should We Disconnect From EU, Danny Perkins Comments | Film News
The whole industry could unravel. Danny Perkins, CEO of StudioCanal UK, the influential mini-studio founded by French entertainment company Canal Plus has issued a dire warning about the UK film industry should we disconnect entirely from the EU, its funding the life blood for the UK film industry. He commented:
“[UK films] qualifying as European content has an impact on the value of our films, especially in regard to French and German TV. There’s a precedent: Switzerland is outside the EU, but its films qualify as European. After the two years of negotiation for Brexit, it’s vital for the UK that its film content counts as European”.
