Looking at how we have funded films on their journey to production helps you to see how films get funded and the various ways we support filmmakers.
More recent, more detail
Our records date back to 1988/89 and reflect information published in our Annual Reports. Our Annual Reports were not as detailed in earlier years so more recent years have more comprehensive information. New funding decisions will be uploaded after each Film Commission Board meeting, which are held five times a year.
We have tried to ensure that these records are accurate. If any records have incorrect information, please let us know and we will correct it as soon as possible. We recommend reading the Guide to Funding Decisions before using the data.
