Strategic Objectives

The main aim of the Council is to enhance the UK’s position as the most successful screen-based creative economy in Europe by:

  • Providing the highest quality of debates, information and viewpoints in order to secure a wider understanding of the business and policy developments currently at play

  • Operating as an industry body, independent of government and individual corporate interests

  • Exploring and assessing the impact that technological and commercial developments will have on the sector

  • Placing priority on the collection and presentation of facts and views held by different sectors of the industry to inform business and public policy issues
