Britfilm Investment Sinks in 2001
Tax breaks and The Film Council's spending spree did little to stem the fallout in the UK production sector, as spending on features last year fell to $788m from $863m in 2000 according to Screen International.
The lack of big pictures shooting here in the aftermath of the strike fear-rush appears to have taken its toll. There are some hopes for an improvement in 2002,with Harry Potter and Tomb Raider sequels, and Bond 20. The production spend for 2001is the worst since 1998.
