Can I submit my film?
The UK Films Database includes UK produced and UK co-produced films (See Criteria for submission ➡️)
We include completed feature-length films and feature-length films that are announced as being in pre-production, production or post-production.


We only include completed short films.

Film images
For all completed films we need a still (not a poster) from the film.
Stills must be JPG or PNG files and at least 750 x 421 pixels. Please make sure to press 'crop and upload'. If we don't receive a still for a COMPLETED film, we can't publish your submission.
If you don't yet have stills because your feature-length film is in production, pre- or post production, you can upload credit details without, and add images later. Please contact us via films@britishcouncil.org to make these updates.

Editing your entry
Once your film is listed in the database, you will be able to suggest changes and updates by using the contact form link at the bottom of your film's database page.

The British Council has editorial control over all database entries and may update or remove listings.

We do not publish links to IMDB entries.

Production & Sales Details
Contact information - A name and at least an email must be provided in the Production Company and/or Sales Agent sections (this could be the producer or director). If you don't provide this information, we can't list your film.
