British Film Office opening in H’wood

Vice-consul Houlton to head facility

The U.K. government is set to open the first British Film Office in L.A.

The move was recommended in an action plan put forward by the Film Policy Review Group, a committee established by the government to invigorate the British film industry.

The office — which is likely to be headed by vice-consul John Houlton — would be charged with “building links” between Hollywood and the U.K. and providing a one-stop information center in L.A. for U.S. studios and producers wishing to shoot in the U.K.

It also would support and develop plans to assist the export drive of the British film and television industry.
