The film production sector in the UK continues to flourish according to independent figures published by the BFI earlier this year.
In 2019 film production in the UK generated a total spend of £1.95 billion, a 17% increase on the previous year’s £1.84 billion and the second highest figure since these statistics were first recorded.
2019 also saw the second highest level of spend by international filmmakers ever recorded, reaching £1.77 billion. This highlights the confidence international filmmakers have in the UK’s creativity, the expertise of our crews, and world-class production facilities combined with the UK film tax relief as well as the wide range of professional services available including the support provided by the British Film Commission.
Major international films such as Avengers: Endgame (pictured top), A Star Wars Story IX: The Rise of Skywalker, James Bond: No Time To Die and Aladdin are generating growth in the UK film industry by bringing investment, creating jobs, and helping film professionals develop new skills which benefit independent productions.
Film production on home-grown films continues with 94 films going into production including Emma directed by Autumn de Wilde; Last Night in Soho directed by Edgar Wright; Ammonite directed by Francis Lee (pictured left); Dream Horse directed by Euros Lyn; and Mogul Mowgli directed by Bassam Tariq.
