International strategy

The BFI’s International Strategy aims to help UK film achieve maximum economic growth and cultural reach.

The strategy is the result of detailed consultation and research with the BFI’s partner agencies and industry stakeholders.

The International Strategy is underpinned by a budget of £1.5m per annum for the duration of Film Forever, the BFI’s five year plan which runs to 2017.

We identified a number of key areas for support and intervention on which the BFI will lead, and which will encompass and inform the activity of our funded partners and other agencies.

Key areas for support and intervention
