The Film 40, Televisual’s annual survey of the UK film industry, is now available to read online in full.

Now in its third year, the Film 40 survey profiles the behind the scenes companies that underpin the success of Britain’s £1bn film production sector.

There’s a showcase of the UK’s top 40 film production companies, responsible for lauded British-made films such as Gravity, Philomena and Rush.

We pick out the UK’s leading film DoPs, who have shot features of the calibre of Captain Phillips, The Invisible Woman and Mike Leigh’s Cannes contender Mr Turner.

We also focus on the UK’s top studios, which are hosting a slew of big budget Hollywood films this year such as the new Star Wars and Joe Wright’s Peter Pan film.

And we shine a spotlight on the films that have been graded in Soho, such as the Coen Brothers’ Being Llewyn Davis and Justin Chadwick’s Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom.

Last but not least, we look at the best examples of British vfx on tentpole features such as 300: Rise of an Empire, White House Down and Gravity.
