We're the Experts

Established as one of nine regional screen agencies by the UK Film Council in 2002, Screen Yorkshire is a standalone company with two decades of experience and expertise behind it. We launched our first production fund in 2003, which went on to invest in iconic British films like the BAFTA-award-winning This is England.
