19.1 Public funding for film in the UK by source Public funding for film identified in Table 19.1 is estimated to have been just over £363 million in the financial year 2012/13, down 0.7% from £366 million in 2011/12. The estimate does not include some types of local authority, research council, higher or further education funding. The largest source of public funding was the UK film tax relief, which provided £206 million in 2012/13 (57% of the total). This was followed by the National Lottery (£65.4 million, 18% of the total) and grantin aid from the Department for Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) (£27.9 million, 8% of the total) to the BFI and the National Film and Television School (NFTS). Film4/Channel 4 provided £18.1 million for film production in the UK in 2012/13 and BBC Films/BBC £12.7 million. The European Union (EU) contributed £6.8 million, of which £5.6 million (£5 million in 2011/12) came from the MEDIA Programme. The year saw a decrease of £13.8 million in DCMS grand-in-aid compared with 2011/12; this was offset by a matching increase in National Lottery investment over the same period. Figure 19.1 shows the proportion of public funding provided by the main sources.
