Barriers for minority ethnic led production

Minority ethnic led independent production companies face particular barriers to success in the film and television sector, according to new research conducted by the Institute for Employment Studies for Pact and the UK Film Council.

The research recommends a number of positive actions for policy bodies and key organisations including:
  • the provision of general support for careers, training, and business advice, and explore targeted support
  • encouraging the further development of networks, by policy bodies and key organisations both individually and collectively, to improve communication within and between the TV and film sectors
  • tackling risk-averse attitudes of those in commissioning/funding
  • improving and opening up the commissioning process to create a greater meritocracy
  • monitoring the range of companies securing commissions and funds to evaluate trends over time.
