Thomas Dillon named chair of Film Complaints Panel

Thomas Dillon





Thomas Dillon has been appointed as the new chair of the Film Complaints Panel, the industry body established to adjudicate on competition disputes within the UK cinema sector.

Dillon’s appointment was announced today by the Film Distributors’ Association and the UK Cinema Association, the trade bodies representing the interests of UK film distributors and cinema operators respectively, each of which is also formally represented on the Panel.

The body was established following the publication of “Film: A report on the supply for films for exhibition in the UK”, a 1994 report by the (then) Monopolies and Mergers Commission. Noting a number of industry practices which were of concern to individual operators, the report proposed the establishment of a dispute resolution panel to address any such issues as they arose.
