Film 40, 2015 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Welcome to the Film 40, Televisual’s fourth annual survey of the UK film industry. The Film 40 is our annual guide to the behind the scenes talent and facilities which contribute so much to Britain’s growing film production industry. The survey kicks off with a round up of the top 40 film production companies in the UK, and also profiles the UK’s leading DPs and grading artists as well as top studios and sound post houses.

How it Works
The Film 40 survey of UK indie producers has been compiled with off the record guidance and input from leading film producers, agents, financiers and PR consultants. But the choice of companies is Televisual’s alone. Unlike Televisual’s other industry surveys – such as the Production 100 or Facilities 50 – the Film 40 does not rank companies by revenues, awards or size. Instead, they are ranked alphabetically. That’s because the film industry is very different from other creative sectors. Projects take years to develop, produce and release – meaning that a film producer’s revenues and output can vary tremendously from year to year. It’s very much a long-term game.

So we have chosen the following companies based on their reputation within the industry. The companies selected are those that have a track record of making films that attract box office, critical acclaim and/or awards. They are not just producers for hire – rather they are producers who look for and develop scripts, attach talent to projects, raise finance and risk their own money in films that they believe in. We’ve also tried to pick companies that are capable of making a broad slate of films.

Missing from the list are companies that are owned by broadcasters (like Film4 and BBC Films) as well as outfits that are predominantly distributors (Lionsgate, Pathe) or financiers (Ingenious, Prescience).
