Head of Distribution & Exhibition, UK Film Council
Peter Buckingham is Head of Distribution & Exhibition at the UK Film Council and as such is tasked with increasing the breadth and diversity of cinema-going across the UK, as well as assisting audience appreciation of UK films. He heads up a range of schemes to support this strategy, which aim to broaden the choice of films available to UK audiences and to increase admissions for specialised film these include the P&A Fund (prints & advertising) and the world's first Digital Screen Network.

The eye-opener is a solo piece de irresistible argument from Peter Buckingham of the UK Film Council, who brought a proper dash of British savoir faire to the stage. In so many ways, the Brits have advanced far along the Watchtower, much more than most. A strong public purpose, good State support, money to fund research and private caps and pounds to roll-out - many in their next media, film and broadcast industries seem to have their collective act together. Peter Buckingham is the Head of Distribution and Exhibition at the Council which encourages cinema-going audiences, films and infrastructures, through such proactive measures as its P&A Fund and the well-known Digital Screen Network. Peter has worked with FilmFour, Virgin and Oasis Cinemas and was responsible for the release of some great films, including, if you will allow me for a second, The Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtles. Peter's session proposed these questions: What catalysts are driving the revolution? What are the significant changes over the last year? What hurdles are the industry facing in the short and long term? Who is seizing the opportunities and leading the way?
Peter began by echoing Screen International's Mike Gubbin's opine from Day Two that Digimart was the place to be in the industries' socialnet calendars.
With a few quick flicks of his magic mouse, Buckingham talks about regeneration, social cultural entrepreneurs and old and new business modes.
Deutchman is also an Associate Prof at Columbia's Grad Film School so was able to use the fine art of rebuttal, and his own Powerful points to illuminate some of Buckingham's earlier visions.
