TIPS ON THE LOTTERY

Seminar to offer guidelines on U.K. film fund

Film funding opportunities offered by the British Lottery System through the Arts Council of England will be the topic tonight of a seminar presented by the American Film Marketing Assn. and the Independent Producers Assn.

International attorney and producer Harris Tulchin and London-based film and TV attorney Mark Westway of Theodore Goddard will participate as panelists.

The Arts Council will license four franchises to administer approximately $256 million in funding for feature films over the next six years. American and other non-British entities can hold a minority interest in a franchise.

Factors to consider

The seminar will focus on guidelines and key considerations for producers, distributors and financial institutions to be concerned about in collaborating with British participants to apply for the franchises.

The franchises will be awarded to consortia that demonstrate financial strength, the ability to attract new investment, the potential for commercial success, proven track records and distribution capabilities in the U.K. and internationally.

The deadline to notify the Arts Council of intent to apply is Dec. 16.

The seminar, which is open to the general public, will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Law Offices of Harris Tulchin, c/o Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp, 6th floor conference room, 11377 W. Olympic Blvd. The fee for IFP members is $10; non-members, $15. RSVP to (310) 392-8553.
