North West Vision – Do they ever reply to anything?

In February I wrote an open letter to North West Vision (I even sent them multiple copies which they could distribute around the office) which suggested that should support initiatives aimed at getting films made in the region exhibited in the region. And I pointed out that this would cost very little money whilst giving them good publicity.

Did North West Vision reply? No.

Sometime later, thinking that it would be interesting to see North West Vision’s full annual report – the one that they say they’ll send copies of on request, I did as they said and sent requests by both email and letter.

Did North West Vision reply? No.

This was exactly what another North West filmmaker told me would happen. He said – I am respecting confidentiality here – that he’d also tried to no avail, and had even raised this with his MP. The result? The information that NWV is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act and is therefore under no obligation to make such information available.
