It’s vital that the specific needs of animation are represented and that we sit around the right tables to influence the outcome. Animation UK was delighted to join Animated Europe as a fully signed up member last year to help progress this.
In that respect, the future of the Creative Europe Funds is critical. We are contributing heavily to the DCMS discussions about these funds and asking the questions: will the UK continue to contribute and if we don’t, what will replace it?
As we work under the banner of the UK Screen Alliance and identify which issues animation has in common with VFX, post and facilities generally, we can present a strong and united case, with evidence to support migration policy, export plans, and wider cultural effects.
