The report was conducted by Saffery Champness and Nordicity and shows how theatrical film distribution makes an important contribution to the UK economy.  This is the first time that such a report has focused solely on film distribution.

Lord Puttnam spoke about the state of British cinema today, the role of distributors as “the arm of the industry that most greatly influences the depth and breadth of consumers’ access to movies” and the importance of flexibility in light of the Digital Single Market.  He welcomed the new report and discussed its relevance in 2015- the year in which British film celebrates its centenary.
