It is not a measure of that company’s contribution to the budget. Most films had a number of production companies associated with them and funding came from a variety of sources including National Lottery funding, UK film tax relief, equity investment, US studio investment, distributor minimum guarantees and television pre-sales. The table includes companies associated with five or more films over the three-year period. This cut-off point omits a number of other major production companies behind well-known UK films, including DJ Films, Heyday Films, Number 9 Films and Potboiler Productions. i • For film production company activity levels in 2013 see Chapter 17 (page 178) • For more on film distributors in the UK in 2013 see Chapter 9 (page 93) • For more on film exhibitors in the UK in 2013 see Chapter 10 (page 104) • For numbers and size distribution of film workplaces in 2013 see Chapter 22 (page 232)
