Scottish film producers call for greater investment in film industry (The Herald)

SCOTTISH film producers have asked the government to take urgent action to increase investment in the movie industry north of the border.

Following the report by Holyrood's Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee, which recommends a film studio be built in Scotland - with any further delay causing "lasting damage" to the film and TV industries north of the border - the Independent Producers Scotland group have called for a £5 million funding pot for film development and production.
