Please read this information before completing the form. We are unable to make extensive corrections to submissions and If you don't provide all the information requested or, for example, use all capitals or all lower case for names, we will not publish your entry.
You must include a film still (not a title card) and at least a contact email address in the Production Company and/or Sales Agent section.
We include feature-length films that are announced as being in pre-production, production, and post-production and completed feature-length films. We only include completed short films. We do not include films which are not classified as British (see below).
The British Council Films Directory is intended to provide a comprehensive listing of professionally-made UK feature films and short films that have, or are likely to achieve, theatrical or festival distribution. We reserve the right not to include films in the Directory, and to edit, delete or cancel entries at any time without notice. Generally, we will not include corporate or commissioned information films, television series, or music videos.
Please make sure that you complete all fields marked with an * before you press the 'Submit film' button at the foot of this page.
Once an entry is published, you will be able to suggest changes and updates by using the contact form link at the foot of each film's profile.
Criteria for submission
British Film certification is not a requirement for listing, but we will not list films where we cannot verify that the film is ‘British’, taking the BFI cultural test as our reference. You must check one of the Criteria for submission boxes (on the right) before you start filling in the form. You can check the BFI's definition of what constitutes a British Film by going here.

Production Company, Sales Agent
Contact information - a name and at least an email - must be provided in the Production Company and/or Sales Agent sections (this could be the producer or director). If you don't provide this information, your film will not be listed. (The 'Contact' information at the bottom of the form is for internal use only and will not appear on the website.)
If your film is complete it is essential that you submit a still (not a poster) from the film: we will not publish entries for complete films without one. Stills must be JPG or PNG files and at least 576 x 325 pixels. If you do not press 'crop and upload', your still will not upload, and we will not publish your submission. Stills are not required for films in production/ pre-production.
Submitted a film and it isn't in the directory?
We check submissions and post entries regularly. We won't publish entries without sufficient information, including contact details (for production company and/or sales agent).
For completed films we won't publish entries without a still (we require a film image NOT a poster).
