When the mainstream media refer to how good British talent did at prestigious award ceremonies they often use the term: “British Film Industry” however that what they are making reference to is “industry”, and certainly not “British Film”. At next month’s BAFTA awards, the American film Gravity is competing within the category of “Outstanding British Film” and so herein lies one of the numerous problems in the British psyche and definitely within institutions like the BBC that have never understood just what a national cinema means.

I cannot pretend to understand all the answers to what constitutes the nationality of any film, but instinctively I understand that Gravity will not be a British film. Once we spout numbers regarding how many films get made in the UK, the number of awards our talents receive, how many jobs are made through UK film production and just how much revenue is generated in to the economy from such productions; none of such figures highlight ‘the elephant in the room’ that is that culturally we do not tell stories that reflect our lifestyle. Films such as the Full Monty become iconic because films using a uniquely British perspective rarely get made or seen. In reality the sole good reason why The Full Monty became offered to a paying market is just because a foreigner invested in it while hailed British institutions like the BBC and Channel Four turned their backs onto it.

How many films do you notice that reflect our experiences to be British and living on these shores? The amount of films can you observe that truly reflect our work places, schools, universities, and personalities. I don’t just mean Ray Winstone! There exists a rainbow selection of personality and culture in Britain that has a representation within the cinema of alongside nil. Forget elitist productions that serve Hollywood’s appetite for the monarchy or English literature; how about our appetite? If you feel people tend not to wish to see such British films, then Make sure you research the takings from the Full Monty and remind yourself who profited!

Not because the days of Prime Minister Harold Wilson have we had an elected representative put a price (Eady Levy) on foreigners accessing our paying audience so that you can Kia Jam. Ridley Scott, David Puttnam, Alan Parker and many others all benefited and grew out of this support system. Trust me, we require not only an Eady Levy to start out any national cinema. The South Korean’s, french, as well as the Australians have got all taken key decisions from Government to safe guard their particular cultures. We, on the other hand have just left it towards the Americans which obviously is not very British.

Until we recognize the requirement for a total shift of consciousness the phrase “British Film” will forever become a contradiction, because a film can never be deemed one nationality when it is owned and distributed by another where each of the key decisions are foreign. This may not constitute a national language of cinema, it precipitates whatever we have today: British talent and rxkfcr for export.

Hollywood comprises a small area of the Indian Cinema. It means the Mumbai-based hindi-language film industry which is the most favored in India. The name ‘Hollywood’ arises from both words ‘Bombay’ (the first kind term for Mumbai) and ‘Hollywood’ (the center for that American Film industry).

Though the majority of Hollywood movies is in the language Hindi, utilization of Urdu and English words is extremely common. The very first Hollywood movie Raja Harishchandra was launched in 1913. Raja harishchandra was a silent movie in monochrome. And the first Indian audible movie was Alam Ara released in 1931.

The expense of Hollywood movies is in million dollars, around 10 million dollars. Hollywood movies are liked and watched by people around the globe. It is actually most favored in south-asian countries like Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Many Pakistanis enjoy Hollywood movies but have some limitations by law. The Indians in South Africa, Nigeria and Morocco form a massive audience for these particular Hindi movies.
