Record breaking year for UK film and television production


£2.37 billion was invested in the UK by international film and high end television productions last year.

This included increased filming in the nations and regions, particularly in the North of England, with Tolkien, Peaky Blinders and Victoria.

The record breaking figures show a 23% increase in film and 27% rise in high end television.

However, the majority of the spend is in the London region, both for studio filming and post production and VFX.

“Film and high-end TV are big business, and today’s figures show the UK continuing to meet the growing demand for content and world-class skills, talent and technical expertise,” said Adrian Wootton OBE, chief executive of the British Film Commission.

“Whether producing lavish period dramas or fantasy epics, every corner of the UK is delivering at the highest level, and our success ultimately translates to economic growth, job creation and training opportunities. This said, however, global competition remains fierce and the landscape continues to shift, meaning we can’t afford to rest on our laurels when it comes to supporting our industry and the highly-skilled workforce that drives it.”
