UK Screen Sectors: A Prospectus for Growth in an Age of Change

This report sets out a prospectus for further growth in the Screen Sectors, which are increasingly being recognised as an economic powerhouse for the UK. In the context of the significant changes in the marketplace and in the political landscape over the last five years, the report re-visits and updates earlier work from British Screen Forum (in 2017-18) when we responded to the Government’s then-industrial strategy and the proposed Sector Deal for the Creative Industries. The report makes the case that the Screen Sectors merit active Government support, as key drivers of growth and renewal across the UK, whilst also providing cultural value and projecting soft power around the world.
