Stats show healthy film/TV production spend

Latest stats released by the BFI present a very healthy picture of film and TV production in the UK, with UK spend from film production the second highest on record. 

In 2015, a total of £1,410m was spent on feature films with 201 beginning principal photography during that time. Although this is a slight drop from the previous year (2014 showed a film spend of £1,497m) it is still a very healthy overall picture.

Of the 201 features that entered production in in 2015, 47 were inward investment projects, and accounted for a whopping 83% of the overall UK spend – an indicator of the massive budgets of some of the overseas projects that utilise UK crew, studios and locations.

Within the UK film sector, spend on independent films went down from £430m in 2014 to £316m in 2105. And domestic UK spend also showed a decrease of 7% on the previous year, at £198m across 124 productions.
