For films made with budgets of £2 million or more, which were not released theatrically but have been shown or are available, the most common platform on which they are available is physical video. For films in the other two budget bands, screenings at film festivals represent the most common platform for reaching audiences. The films shown at festivals have been divided into films screened at festivals and also available elsewhere and films screened at festivals only. A film festival provides in effect a oneoff opportunity for a film to be viewed so a film shown just at a festival has less opportunity to reach an audience than one shown at a festival and also available on other platforms.
