BFI wants 'wild creativity'

The British Film Institute (BFI) is unveiling a five-year strategic plan for the future of the UK film industry.

The BFI's plan involves supporting cinema production and partnerships with independent film companies.

Ben Roberts, director of the BFI Film Fund, is responsible for defining what the future British-made films will look like.

He told the BBC's arts editor, Will Gompertz, that he is looking for "wild creativity at a grass roots level... we are going to have more people on the ground looking for new material."

"If we are not supporting a film, it stands a strong chance of not being made" Mr Roberts added.
