BBC Films

BBC Films is the feature film-making arm of the BBC. It was founded on 18 June 1990, and has produced or co-produced some of the most successful British films of recent years, including ''Truly, Madly, Deeply'', ''Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa'', ''Quartet'', ''Chef'', ''Salmon Fishing in the Yemen'', ''Saving Mr. Banks'', ''My Week with Marilyn'', ''Jane Eyre,'' ''In the Loop'', ''An Education'', ''StreetDance 3D'', ''Fish Tank'', ''Nativity!, Iris, Notes on a Scandal, Man Up, Billy Elliot and Brooklyn.''

BBC Films co-produces around eight films a year, working in partnership with major international and UK distributors. Rose Garnett is Head of BBC Films, responsible for the development and production slate, strategy and business operations.

BBC Films has been based at Broadcasting House in London since 2013. Prior to 2007, it was based nearby in Mortimer Street, while still under full control of the BBC. A restructuring of the division integrated it into the main BBC Fiction department of BBC Vision. As a result, it moved out of its independent offices into BBC Television Centre, and its head David M. Thompson left to start his own film production company. Provided by Wikipedia
