The urgent reality facing our workforce
This winter, the film, TV, and cinema industry continues to face an emergency. And they desperately need your help so, together, we can make a difference.
Even though they have come to an end, the impact of the US strikes will be felt for some time to come, conspiring with the ongoing cost-of-living crisis and a downturn in production across the wider industry to create a perfect storm.
Thousands of industry workers have found themselves out of work this year and, with continuing uncertainty across the film, TV, and cinema sector, they need your help now more than ever.
- It’s reported that up to 75% of the industry are out of work (Bectu survey, 2023)
- Over the summer they saw an 800% increase in demand for Stop-Gap Grants to help with urgent financial need
- Research shows that 50% of people working in the industry have less than £1,000 in savings – meaning many will be left with nowhere to turn
In September alone, the charity awarded more than £250,000 to people who desperately needed help
