BSAC
The British Screen Advisory Council (BSAC) is a unique independent forum. It brings together the widest range of UK interests, knowledge and contacts in the audiovisual industries to provide an independent platform for the regular exchange of ideas and information. BSAC serves as a place where senior executives can discuss the changes which they are seeking to navigate in their business lives. This provides an invaluable underpinning to BSAC's policy advice to government, policy makers and the audiovisual industries themselves.
