MOVIE NEWS: Proposed BBFC legislation will affect YOU, film fans!
UK Government changes to the way in which the BBFC charges video companies to classify material will potentially kill off independent distributors. These small companies are already hit hard by the current classification structure and pricing (see previous article here).
If you care about people like Arrow Films, Safecracker, Eureka, Second Sight, Network and many others flying the flag for independent and archive film/TV releases, and you want media outlets outside of the major studios and conglomerates, please take the time to read James Oliver's open letter to Maria Miller, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, and sign the online petition via moviemail.com.
Your favourite independent distributors need you!
