BBC Films is the feature film-making arm of the BBC. It has produced or co-produced some of the most successful British films of recent years, including Stage Beauty, A Cock and Bull Story and Match Point. It currently produces approximately eight films per year.
Up until 2007, BBC Films was run and funded as a private company, with its own offices (in Mortimer Street around the corner from Broadcasting House), while still under the full control of the BBC. A recent re-structuring 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 Television Centre, and its head David M. Thompson left to start his own film production company. Since April 2009, BBC Films has been led by Christine Langan and Jane Wright.
