BFI's Statistical Yearbook 2011 released

03 August 2011

The BFI (British Film Institute) has released its 2011 statistical yearbook as it inherits the responsibility for such data from the UK Film Council. There is a vast amount of information in the book (which actually covers 2010), but the headlines include:

  • Toy Story 3 was the biggest UK box-office hit in 2010, grossing £73m.
  • Box office receipts were up 5% to £988m, but cinema visits were down 2%. 
  • 'British' films (broadly defined, as ever) accounted for 24% of the market.
