Oliver Dowden – 2020 Comments on Funding for Independent Cinemas

The comments made by Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on 20 December 2020.

The magic of film is such an important part of the festive period and this investment will help protect our independent cinemas so they’re around for many Christmases to come. Alongside it, the extension of the Film and TV Production Restart Scheme means the UK will be producing even more great content as the cinema industry recovers, keeping us at the forefront of the creative industries.
