Gummer's lottery logic
Tuesday 13 June 1995
Who will benefit from the pounds 80m plus of lottery cash to be directed into British films? Peter Gummer, chairman of the Arts Council Lottery Board, does not rule out putting money into films with US backing. "Each on its merit," he says. Nor will there be an insistence that scripts are written by Britons. He spots a market gap in encouraging medium-budget films. The scheme is to be run on the same basis as the British Screen Fund. The key difference will be that the lottery money can be used to fund distribution. Other candidates for funds include independent cinemas wishing to add air conditioning.
