Film 40, 2016 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Welcome to the Film 40, Televisual’s fifth annual survey of the UK film industry.

The Film 40 is our annual guide to the behind the scenes talent and facilities of the UK’s film production industry. It kicks off with a round up of the top 40 film producers in the UK, and in subsequent pages we profile the UK’s leading DPs, grading artists, studios and vfx houses (click on links below for full reports).

The big change since the Film 40 began five years ago is how film producers have pushed into TV drama. All leading UK film producers – including 42, Blueprint, Big Talk, Heyday, Cuba, Number 9, Origin, Revolution, Scott Free and See-Saw and Working Title – have TV divisions working for broadcasters who are looking for shows told with the high-end production values of film.

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.

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 (StudioCanal, Lionsgate, Pathe) or financiers (Ingenious, Prescience).

The 40 companies are working in an environment where it is as tough as ever to get projects financed. Nevertheless, they’re behind some of the big successes of UK cinema in recent years, contributing to the £1.4bn spent on UK film production in 2015.
