Abstract

Established by a Labour government in April 2000 and wound up at the end of March 2011 by a Conservative-led coalition, the UK Film Council (UKFC) was the key strategic body responsible for supporting the film industry and film culture in Britain for over a decade. Cultural agencies such as the UKFC may be conjured into life by governments of one colour and unceremoniously interred by those of another. Such decisions are of considerable interest to all those who wish to understand the nature and exercise of political power in the cultural field.
