Film4 is home to two departments, each with a different purpose. One is the UK’s most-watched film channel with a diverse and innovative schedule of films. The other is Channel 4 Television’s feature film division, Film4 productions. Both play a key role in bringing our public service remit to life – whether it’s on the big or small screen.
Film4 has developed and co-financed many of the most successful UK films of recent years, Academy Award®-winners such as Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave, Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, Lenny Abrahamson’s Room, Alex Garland’s Ex Machina, Asif Kapadia’s box office record breaking documentary Amy and Phyllida Lloyd’s The Iron Lady, in addition to critically-acclaimed award-winners such as Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner, Chris Morris’s Four Lions, Shane Meadows’ This is England, Clio Barnard’s The Selfish Giant, Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin and David Mackenzie’s Starred Up.
The Film4 Productions team consists of the following departments: creative development, legal & business affairs, physical production, marketing and distribution. It’s public service remit includes developing creative talent; making, broadcasting and distributing high-quality films intended for theatrical release; and broadcasting films which reflect cultural activity in the UK. The team works hard. You must be passionate and knowledgeable about film, collaborative and communicative, resilient, dedicated and discreet. You will need the ability to prioritise and manage a large and diverse workload.
Over the years, Film4 has been key to developing future generations of UK film talent, a service crucial to ensuring the long-term sustainability of the UK film ecosystem. Enabling talent to cut its teeth on smaller, independent films is essential to developing the next generation of breakout commercial film talent.
