Call for survey responses: Bristol Film, TV & media businesses and freelancers

*Please note that surveys are now closed and results/response to them will be published in due course*
2nd April 2020, 5pm

COVID-19 has caused unprecedented changes to film and TV production around the world. In the UK, nearly all production has halted. At this time of extreme uncertainty, we know that many of you in Bristol have either lost work, or face losing work.

The Government announced financial support measures for businesses affected by the coronavirus outbreak on 16th March. A further announcement confirming financial support measures for self-employed workers was made on 26th March.

In order to lobby and influence local and national intervention, Bristol Film Office & The Bottle Yard Studios (divisions of Bristol City Council’s Culture & Creative Industries team) are now asking for survey responses from Bristol’s film, TV and media businesses and freelancers.

If you are a freelancer or self-employed worker, based in and around Bristol and employed by the film, TV and media sector, please complete our FREELANCER SURVEY.

If you represent a business (small or large) that services the film, TV, moving image and media industry in and around Bristol, please complete our BUSINESSES SURVEY.

Responses received before 4pm on Wednesday 8th April will be compiled and shared with Bristol City Council’s Economic Development team, senior leaders, councillors, local MPs and local/national sector bodies.

Data will be compiled and analysed collectively. Any information you provide will contribute to how we lobby local and central Government and support the local sector to recover from the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

Thank you for your participation.
