The Digital Creative Network Community:
The West London Boroughs (via West London Alliance), Creative Enterprise Zone West, West London Business, Film London and London and Partners, are working together to promote the West London sub-region as the “Screen Capital”, a globally significant cluster recognised as a world-leader for talent, innovation and sustainability in the TV/Film industry.
West London and the surrounding environments have a competitive advantage with superior connectivity, major studios, international screen corporates, strong ecosystem and in-demand talent. While this cluster has grown organically over the years, there is now a need for collaboration amongst industry, academia and government to address the shared priorities of increasing the supply of skilled workers, increasing studio space, promoting networks, innovation and sustainability.
