John Woodward today announced that he is standing down as Chief Executive Officer of the UK Film Council. He will leave the organisation in early November 2010 and will announce his future plans in due course.
Commenting on his decision, Woodward said: "For the next few weeks the UK Film Council is in a dialogue with the Government about the future support structures for UK film. By choosing to make my position clear now, I can be objective and unconflicted throughout that process. It should then, rightly, be for others to take the new system forward and write the next chapter for UK film.
