Public Sector Network Tender Alert


Screen Business 2021

The BFI is seeking to commission a supplier to produce an update to the economic estimates contained in the 2018 Screen Business study in a way that is consistent with Treasury Green Book guidelines whilst maintaining continuity with the time series data presented in the 2018 edition. For each of the screen sector industries included in this study, the report should demonstrate full-time equivalent (FTE) employment and the total value chain impact (including exports), i.e.: - Direct impact (Production, Distribution and Exhibition - both primary and secondary) - Multiplier effects - Spillover effects (film induced tourism, merchandise sales and trade promotion (UK brand)). The Screen Business methodology is underpinned by the Job Creation through Production Investment modelling tool, which estimates the number of jobs created per £1m spend for different genres and budget bands of film and HETV as well as for VFX. The tool was developed to be able to model figures for 2016 through to 2020. This tool will be made available to the successful supplier. The 2021 edition will also: - Report on measures that capture the economic contribution of the total scope of the animation , visual effects (VFX) and video games industries outside the core spend generated by UK-qualifying content . - Include productivity measures for the film, high-end television, children's television, and the animation, visual effects and video game sectors. - Show production spend, return on investment and regional growth data at a nations and regions level (or case studies where such data is not available). As part of the certification process, the BFI holds some nations and regions level data but this is not currently comprehensive. Agencies are encouraged to discuss ideas for how we might be able to address this gap through modelling or other techniques and in particular how, going forward, we can meet the need for stress testing new government initiatives and the levelling up agenda. - Report on studio space investment (e.g. the amount of private sector investment going into studios as a result of the tax reliefs; amount of investment through Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs); impact of investment locally and where creative industries overlap (e.g. workforce development; and capacity as well as financial impacts), private sector investment in skills.) - Illustrate, through the use of case studies, the use of tax incentives offered in other countries and regions, particularly for VFX, to demonstrate how tax breaks apply in different ways and best practice around what elements are working particularly well. Given that Screen Business 2021 will also be an important snapshot of the industry in a pre COVID-19 world, we also welcome ideas from suppliers as to how the results from this study can be used to provide benchmarks and a database of industry metrics for the future.
