We are a cultural charity, a National Lottery distributor, and the UK’s lead organisation for film and the moving image. We believe society needs stories. Film, television and the moving image bring them to life, helping us connect and understand each other better. We share the stories of yesterday, search for the stories of today, and shape the stories of tomorrow.

We support diversity and inclusion, and as an organisation recognise that we need to address under-representation within our teams.

We guarantee a first interview to our under-represented groups who meet our minimum requirements.
