About the Directory
Our UK Film Directory is an extensive searchable database of new and recent UK produced and UK co-produced films.
The Database has a separate 'In Production' section which lists feature-length films (fiction and documentary) currently in progress, either in pre-production, production, or post-production.
An Ireland, UK, US co-production, The Favourite premiered at the Venice Film Festival in August 2018. The film achieved great success, winning multiple awards including seven BAFTAs and an Academy Award for Olivia Colman. Although she might 'look like a badger' in this film image, on Oscar night 2019 Ms Colman was full of her characteristic wit, giving one of the best acceptance speeches in recent memory.
The UK Film Directory contains a continuously expanding record of UK features, shorts, documentaries and animation. Its archive of UK produced and co-produced films extends back to 1998.
Each Database entry contains a brief synopsis, along with information on the production company, sales agent, cast and crew.
Films In Production
This is a separate section of the Directory which lists UK produced and co-produced feature-length films (fiction and documentary) in progress, either in pre-production, production, or post-production, prior to their inclusion in the UK Films Directory. It also lists current information on the film's director, producers, screenwriter, cast, sales agent and production status.
If you would like to enter your film into the Database – either while it is in production or if it is already complete – you can suggest a new film.

UK Film Catalogues
Each year, we choose a selection of films from the UK Film Directory to include in our features, shorts, documentaries and animation catalogues. These are compiled and released as printable PDFs, and intended particularly to assist festival programmers, film buyers, filmmakers, students and historians. The catalogues represent the wide range of UK films made each year.
