Institutions and Audiences - Key Terms For Film

Make this your starting point. How do British film production companies and distributors survive and prosper given their more powerful neighbour, Hollywood? What is the current state of the UK film industry? To be specific focus your case study on a UK institution from which you can later make comparisons with US production companies.
