The Skills Investment Fund, the UK fund for training made up of contributions from local productions, has topped £2 million.

Dan Films' The Republic Of Love became the 149th feature to contribute to the fund, which was launched at the end of 1999 to address skills gaps and shortages within the UK film industry.

Feature productions based in the UK or made with UK public funding contribute 0.5% of their production budget to the fund, which is ploughed back into industry training initiatives.
