Some professionals have doubted whether Britain can actually lay claim to a film 'industry' at all. In the opinion of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, it can't. Speaking in an interview for BBC Radio 4 series The Business of Film, Vaughn had harsh words for the business he works in: "In England, most people think it's an achievement to get a film made, which I think is.   Janu The state of the UK film industry. The newspapers last week featured headlines like “UK film production break[s] records” and “Star Wars punches London film industry past light speed“.. This led to a number of people contacting me to ask if the overall message was true – is the UK film industry really doing as well as is being claimed?

Indulge your inner movie fan and see the best new cinema from Britain and around the world at this year’s BFI London Film Festival, in partnership with American Express from October 8th – 19th. Films recreating or addressing 'the past' - recent or distant, actual or imagined - have been a mainstay of British cinema since the silent era. From Elizabeth to Carry On Up The Khyber, and from the heritage-film debate to issues of authenticity and questions of genre, British Historical Cinema explores the ways in which British films have represented the past on screen, the issues they raise.

This program looks at British screenwriters and the various approaches to writing a script to tell a good story for film. You will also analyze London as the setting for films of different genres throughout the years, both in films made by British directors and in films made by visiting directors.   Skyfall boosts British cinema as audiences reach decade high Skyfall leads the way for British films, British Film Institute statistics show, as cinema audiences soar.
