We bring the best of UK film to international audiences through a network of international film festival partnerships. By collecting information on all new UK films in production, we provide an up-to-date snapshot of contemporary UK film talent.
Supporting new talent
Our opportunities and travel grants help new UK filmmakers reach audiences, and share and discover knowledge, innovation and good practice with international peers.
Touring the best of UK film
Working with partners internationally, we tour themed programmes of UK film around the world.
Celebrating digital innovation
We use digital platforms to champion UK film, and celebrate the new possibilities of games and creative technology.
Developing international training and skills partnerships across all moving image fields, our programmes use film to encourage exchange and dialogue, promote marginalised voices and explore cultural identity.
