  5. 5. Production Budgets and Ethos To develop (new) British Talent and be a leader of innovation in the British Film industry To invest around £500,000 per film, at a rate of around 20 films a year To support international (including American) independent film-makers by co-investing in innovative and interesting foreign films. To offer a platform for British and independent cinema on terrestrial television by commiting to showing each one of Film Four Productions films on Channel 4 and it’s sister station Film Four.
  6. 6. Distribution Film 4 Distribute their films successfully by making their channel free view. By doing this, it reels viewers in looking for a free movie channel that shows adequate movies. This is also an advantage for Film 4 to attract viewers from competitors such as Sky Movies, which cost viewers to watch movies.
