UK film production (2020)

The total spend on feature film production during the year was £1.37 billion, 37 per cent lower in 2019.   Of this spend, £412.3 million was generated in Q4, 30 per cent of the year’s total spend.

More than 90 per cent of total spend was generated by inward investment films generally in the blockbuster budget range, and co-productions, underlining the UK industry’s world-class reputation globally as an international production hub. US-studio backed productions accounted for £1.06 billion

Inward investment films which started production include The Batman,  Cinderella, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3, Jurassic World: Dominion,  The Little Mermaid,  Lockdown, Mission: Impossible 7, The Northman, and Text for You.

Analysis of inward investment productions reveals 12 Indian films including Bell Bottom (dir. Ranjit Tewari), The Chef and Paani Ch Madhaani.

Domestic UK films generated spend of £119.5 million, £89 million less than in 2019.  Films which went into production included Belfast (dir Kenneth Branagh), Benediction (dir. Terence Davies), Boxing Day (dir. Aml Ameen), The Duke (dir. Roger Michell), ear for eye (dir, debbie tucker green), The Fantastic Flitcrofts (dir. Craig Roberts), The Forgiven (dir. John Michael McDonagh), Mothering Sunday (dir. Eva Husson), Pirates (dir. Reggie Yates), Quant (dir. Sadie Frost), True Things About Me (dir. Harry Wootliff), The Score  (dir. Malachi Smyth) and What’s Love Got To do With It? (dir. Shekhar Kapur).  Co-productions included Ballywalter (dir. Prasanna Puwanarajah) and My Son (dir. Christian Carion)
