We’re the charity working behind the scenes of the UK film, TV and cinema industry. From research to writing, through casting and production, to editing, sales, distribution and exhibition, we support the lives of everyone involved.
The Film and TV Charity was founded back in the early days of cinema in 1924, and we’re almost reaching our centenary year. Today, we’re pleased to be able to offer a wide range of financial, practical and emotional support to people who have talent, spark and dedication … and yet find obstacles in their way. If you give your time and talent to film, TV or cinema, we’re here for you.
“We’re shining a light on the highs and the lows of this extraordinary industry, helping people to smash their career goals and fulfil their potential.
