The Film and TV Charity is deeply saddened by the death of its long-standing Trustee and giant of the UK film industry Trevor Green.
BAFTA has announced its support for The Film and TV Charity’s Covid-19 emergency response.
Our brilliant, successful and creative community now faces some of its toughest ever challenges. We’re hugely thankful to those who have already donated. But we need to do more.
Sky has today committed to donate £500,000 to the emergency relief fund recently established to support the UK’s creative community in the wake of COVID-19.
By donating, corporates and individuals will be helping those who have been vital to our industry’s huge success story.
The scheme offers much-needed financial support to freelancers waiting for payments under the Government’s Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.
Open for 2 weeks, the fund will provide much-needed support to the many thousands of workers who have been hit hard by the closure of productions across the UK.
£500,000 will go towards the new Film and TV COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund, in partnership with the BFI.
