answer text <p>We recognise that there is more to be done to ensure that the screen sector and the wider creative industries reflects the diversity of UK society. DCMS is working with the British Film Institute (BFI) to drive improved diversity by promoting the uptake of the BFI Diversity Standards. These focus on training as well as representation, and are designed to drive lasting change in the workforce. The BFI has set a target of all producers active in the UK having voluntarily accepted the BFI Diversity Standards by 2022. The operation of tax relief is a matter for the Treasury.</p> more like this
