We were part of the BFI’s COVID-19 screen sector task force and worked proactively with other industry bodies to find solutions to the crucial issues faced by the industry and everyone who works in it. Pact Chief Executive John McVay led the industry taskforce on insurance, which worked with the Government to reach a solution to the lack of COVID-19 insurance – the £500m Production Restart Scheme.

Our policy team ran targeted surveys of the Pact membership during this crisis, to ensure we had accurate and up to date information on the situation for UK indies, which greatly helped in our discussions with Government, broadcasters and unions.
