BFI Skills Resources
The UK film and high-end television (HETV) production sector is unrecognisable from when we published our Future Film Skills Action Plan back in 2017. Our studios and crew have long been the driving force behind some of the biggest and most successful film and HETV in recent decades, but more recently the sheer volume of large scale productions being produced in the UK has risen exponentially.
Disability Arts Online
We are an organisation led by disabled people, set up to advance disability arts and culture through our journal. Our raison d’être is to support disabled artists, by getting the word out about the fantastic art being produced within the sector.
