BBC Films co-produces around eight films a year, working in partnership with major international and UK distributors. Rose Garnett is Head of BBC Films, responsible for the development and production slate, strategy and business operations.[2]

BBC Films has been based at Broadcasting House in London since 2013.[3] Prior to 2007, it was based nearby in Mortimer Street, while still under full control of the BBC. A restructuring 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 BBC Television Centre, and its head David M. Thompson left to start his own film production company.[4]
