We use Lottery funds to nurture and invest in a diverse mix of first-class filmmakers UK-wide; to discover and develop new talent; and to support the production of a wide range of films that will enrich British film culture and define Britain and its storytellers in the 21st century, for the benefit of audiences at home and abroad.
We support UK distributors to help ensure that the best British and specialised films connect with a wide range of audiences across a range of platforms throughout the UK.
We support sales companies who are premiering new UK films at key international film festivals and markets.
We invest in skills across the film sector and support inward investment and film exports, helping the industry to remain competitive, especially on the global stage.
