British films and television programmes are watched and admired around the world. In 2020, our Exports Report showed that UK TV exports were worth almost  £1.5bn, with sales of finished TV programming surpassing £1bn for the first time.

In recent years alone we’ve helped facilitate thousands of 1-2-1 meetings between Pact Members and international buyers. We also run Content Without Borders, an event series which provides opportunities to hear about the latest trends and commissioner wants in key markets including the US, Canada, China, Latin America and Europe.

Pact is also a founder member of the Global Creative Alliance, a partnership established between film and TV trade associations from around the world to encourage more effective international collaboration between producers and increase opportunities for co-productions.
