Film London has welcomed the release of a major new anti-piracy report by the UK Film Council, Film theft in the UK, which calls on the government and the industry to work together to stamp out this growing illegal trade. London is the third biggest film production centre in the world with £1 billion spent on film-making in the capital last year alone but this new report highlights the threat film piracy poses to the sustainability of film in a city where the film and media industry employs 100,000 people.

A raven perched on the rim of a teacup, a bowler hat rolling along on a patch of grass, a window framing a view of raining umberellas and an ice cool blonde slowly and nervously walking down the corridor of a sumptuous interior…These Hitchcockian motifs are repeated in Johan Grimonprez's homage to the master of suspense at the Photographers Gallery.
