The 2007 SIC provides a more detailed breakdown of the industry by sub-sector, as shown in Table 21.1. This gives an official measure of film production and distribution separate from video production and distribution, and confirms that film production and distribution make up the majority of the industry. It also highlights the relative importance of the post-production sector (22% of turnover) which can be separately identified in the 2007 SIC. Table 21.1 Total turnover of UK film industry by sub-sector, 2012 Sub-sector Turnover (£ million) % of total Film production 2,260 31.0 Video production 293 4.0 Film, video and TV post-production 1,587 21.8 Film distribution 1,833 25.1 Video distribution c c Film exhibition 1,322 18.1 Sector total (excluding video distribution) 7,295 100.0 Source: Office for National Statistics Annual Business Survey Notes: Companies in the post-production sector usually work on films, commercials, videos and television programmes, and therefore have a combined statistical classification. ‘c’ indicates the data have been made confidential by the Office for National Statistics to avoid disclosing details of individual companies. Figure 21.2 shows the turnover for film production, film, video and TV post-production, film distribution and film exhibition from 2008 to 2012. Film distribution was the sub-sector with the highest turnover up to 2011 but, due to the reclassifications of businesses within the distribution sector, turnover for film distribution fell by £760 million between 2011 and 2012, and in 2012 film distribution turnover was lower than that for film production. The turnover for post-production has shown increases since 2010 and the turnover for exhibition has increased slightly every year over the period.
