Michael Winterbottom provides an insider's view of the workings of international film funding and distribution.

Who and what decides whether a film gets funded? How do those who control the purse strings also determine a film's content and even its message?

Michael Winterbottom is joined by Asif Kapadia and Mike Leigh to discuss the themes of his new book 'Dark Matter: Independent Filmmaking in the 21st Century'.

The award-winning directors will discuss how studios that fund film production and control distribution networks also work against a sustainable independent film culture and limit innovation in style and content. They will share their vision of how the contemporary filmmaking landscape could be reformed, with fairer funding and payment practices, allowing for a more innovative and sustainable 21st-century industry.
