UK films

A UK film is one which is certified as such under Schedule 1 of the Films Act 1985, via the Cultural Test or as an official co-production.

Most UK films apply for certification but a film which has not been certified can also be considered to be a UK film on the basis of its content, producers, finance and talent.
