Our Remit & Service

We are funded by the BFI to offer bespoke, comprehensive production support to feature film and high-end TV looking to film in England, outside of London.

Our remit is to support continued investment in film and TV production across England, outside London.  To improve support to creative and influential film-makers in their creation of content admired round the world. We work to support further spread in the levels of feature film and high-end TV production activity taking place across the English regions, ensuring communities across the nation enjoy the profile, job opportunities and economic benefits that the sector generates.

For all other production genres, our core support is delivered through digital resources and signposting.  We continue to develop our fully-accessible online resources including our locations, crew and facilities database, crewing service, local permissions directory and filming guidance centre.  We work closely with local authorities to provide the tools, advice and guidance they need to effectively facilitate filming in their area.
