After this week's announcement of the Cannes Film Festival Competition and Un Certain Regard Lineups, Ben Roberts, Director of the BFI Film Fund made a statement about the British filmmakers included in the exclusive list: 

“Congratulations to Mike and Ken whose wonderful films will light up the Croisette with their colorful, transcendent reflections on life and love, politics and change, art and music. It’s been a privilege to work with two true masters of British cinema at their finest. Congratulations also to new British talent Andrew Hulme whose directorial debut, Snow in Paradise is premiering in Un Certain Regard. We have our fingers crossed for more good news next week!” said Roberts.

Its key priorities are to support a vibrant UK film culture by investing in film education, audience access, filmmaking and film heritage.
