UK films at Cannes 2021

UK participants spotlight 2021

GREAT 8 showcases UK talent

Cannes 2021

Thank you for joining us for our virtual presence at this year’s hybrid festival, with an online UK Pavilion at the Marché du Film, and a programme of industry events and Talent Talks available to all.

If you missed our online events during the busy fortnight of Cannes, we have you covered - catch up here!

Topics covered include fighting back on bullying and harassment, sustainability in the screen sector, building your networks, the new UK Global Screen Fund and a talk on sales and contracts in partnership with ScreenDaily. In addition there are discussions with directors Eva Husson and Mark Cousins, and the producers of ALI & AVA, MOTHERING SUNDAY and COW.

We hope that next year we can celebrate UK films in person at Cannes! With thanks to all our partners, the festival team and fantastic UK filmmakers.

Our 2021 Cannes activity was brought to you in association with the UK Government's GREAT campaign, and with funding from the National Lottery. Find out more about our partners here.

The UK films database - a continuously expanding collection of over 10,000 features, shorts, documentaries and animation, maintained by the British Council, is a record of all UK produced and co-produced films completed since 1998.
