Tired of other people's "best of" lists? Now's a chance to have your own say.
As part of the new film skills strategy, A Bigger Future, Skillset is strengthening the infrastructure to support industry led and focused film skills development and education.
Amongst the many education projects they are currently working on, there will be an established network of Screen Academies, UK centres of excellence for film production, accredited film courses at colleges of further and higher education and a post-graduate Film Business Academy. These courses will have a far greater industry input and focus and will consequently provide the industry with the brightest and best graduates.
One element they are creating to support this work is the Required Viewing List - a list of feature films that key industry professionals believe to be pivotal in educating people about feature films. To create this list they are approaching the Guilds and high profile practitioners and asking them for their Top Ten must see films.
The Writers' Guild have been contacted in order to provide the writers' perspective. We will be sending our Top Ten films to Skillset on 1 September 2004.
If you are a Guild member and would like to contribute to the Guild's list, then please email your Top Ten films to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 August. Please quote "TOP TEN FILMS" in the subject box of your email.
