Who We Are

We are the leading UK charity for Cinema, Film and TV professionals, supporting those in times of need, and running charity fundraising events including the annual Royal Film Performance™

What We Do

We provide dynamic support for those facing personal and career challenges of illness, injury, unemployment or finances. We also aid talent entering our industries through the John Brabourne Awards

Who We Help

You could be a script editor, focus puller, make-up artist, SFX supervisor, TV scheduler or cinema manager; but whatever your role we are here to help if you have over 2 years paid industry employment

All of us at the CTBF are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our Vice Patron, Lord Attenborough, CBE - "Dickie".
The support he gave to the Fund to help those in need who work in our industry, will never be forgotten.
His career as an actor, director and producer is unparalleled in British film and he will be sorely missed by us all.

Supporting Emerging Talent

The John Brabourne Awards (JBAs) are a stepping stone for emerging talent.

Glebelands Care Home

Owned and run by the CTBF, Glebelands is a very special retirement home.
