Note: Definition of ‘UK film’ For the purposes of this chapter, a UK film is one which is certified as such by the UK Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport under Schedule 1 of the Films Act 1985, via the Cultural Test, under one of the UK’s bilateral co-production agreements or the European Convention on Cinematographic Co-production, or a film which has not applied for certification but which is British on the basis of its content, producers, finance and talent. Most UK films in the analysis (including the major studiobacked films) fall into the first group – films officially certified as British. 70 – BFI Statistical Yearbook 2014 Austria Australia Italy Portugal South Korea France Spain Germany Russia USA Netherlands Venezuela Japan Brazil Mexico China Chile i • For more on the performance of UK films at the UK box office see Chapter 1 (page 10) • For more on the UK and global market for filmed entertainment see Chapter 14 (page 151) • For more on the UK film economy see Chapter 21 (page 220) Image: 12 Years a Slave courtesy of eOne Films
