What we do

The UK Screen Alliance consists of the UK Screen Association and Animation UK.

UK Screen Association is the trade association that represents companies providing production facilities and specialist services to the Screen Industries - film, television, commercials etc.

Animation UK is the trade body that represents animation studios, producers and distributors.

Together we form the UK Screen Alliance, an independent, industry-funded body with membership comprising companies involved in animation, post-production, visual effects, physical special effects, audio, camera and lighting hire, freelance talent agencies and studios.

Our Core Purpose

  • UK Screen Alliance is a strong voice at the top table for the member companies who work in the UK Screen sector. We provide the collective clout that individual businesses can not achieve alone.
  • We proactively raise issues, drive the debate and lobby to influence Government, broadcasters and other industry bodies. We shoulder the collective burden to improve business conditions, sector best practice and industry skills for our members.
  • We disseminate validated and pertinent information to give our members a competitive advantage. We add value regionally, nationally and internationally by raising the profile of member businesses within the industry and with potential clients.
  • We promote a fair, healthy and competitive UK screen sector.


We work closely with bodies such as DCMS, BEIS, Dept. for International Trade, HM Treasury, BFI, Film London, The British Film Commission, Creative Skillset, Next Gen, The Digital Production Partnership, the Migration Advisory Committee and many more. UK Screen Alliance is widely-acknowledged as the entity to be included in any consultations affecting TV and film production facilities companies.
