The Knowledge 2024 - deadline approaches
The new edition of The Knowledge is due out in early December and we are now nearing the deadline for bookings!
We are delighted that, in this age of digital-first, we continue to field enquiries pretty much all year round about when the next print edition is due out.
Now cantering towards middle age as it hits its 37th year, The Knowledge remains a vital, one-stop shop for UK film and TV production professionals.
From animals to agents, and from camera crew to caterers, the directory is packed full of essential production services around the nations and regions.
Not just found on production office desks in the UK, The Knowledge is now also seen by many overseas producers planning their inward investment projects, arming themselves with as much key information about the UK production landscape as possible.
Can you afford not to be seen?! Raise the profile of your offering to the key decision-makers and budget-holders and book your space now.
