Screen Yorkshire Fund £7.5million Boost


After a great end to 2013 with Christmas hits of Death Comes to Pemberley and The Great Train Robbery following on from Peaky Blinders, Screen Yorkshire announces further success for the region bringing an additional £7.5million into the Yorkshire Content Fund. Read the press release here.


Sally Joynson, Chief Executive of Screen Yorkshire, said: “This additional investment of £7.5 million,effectively doubling the capacity of the Yorkshire Content Fund, is a vote of confidence in Yorkshire, in Screen Yorkshire and the effectiveness of the Yorkshire Content Fund in putting Yorkshire at the heart of production across the UK screen industries. Over the past two years we have been able to work with established and emerging UK producers from across the UK as well as those based in Yorkshire to make 18 film and television productions in the region generating work and training opportunities as well as boosting spend within the local economy. By increasing the level we’re prepared to invest in key projects, we are also now aiming to work with bigger productions which can further grow and create opportunities for Yorkshire.”




Screen Yorkshire has secured a further £7.5m ($12.3m) from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to invest in film, TV, games and digital production.
