The DCMS has posted an online survey in connection with its film policy review. The survey includes questions that offer opportunities to argue for lottery funds to be assigned to screen education and research, and to emphasise the importance of the field to film culture.

From Sight and Sound August 2011:
BAFTSS (British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies) is a new organisation set up by HE professionals to represent the interests of UK screen education and research in a national context. Part of its remit is to promote the visibility and relevance of the discipline, and to respond actively to policy proposals from the government and funding agencies. It aims to work with other organisations, including the BFI, to consolidate and strengthen the vital role played by moving image education and research in British and international screen culture.
