About Us

The BVA was established in 1980 to represent the interests of publishers and rights owners of pre-recorded video entertainment.

Video entertainment is critical for the cultural and economic success of the UK's audiovisual sector and, in a world of evolving technology and new opportunities, the British Video Association's primary objective is to help maintain a business environment with the least regulatory burdens and optimal conditions that enables video's crucial role in the audiovisual eco-system to continue.

The BVA's members account for some 90% of this £2 billion+ industry and include film and television companies and independent labels which produce, license and distribute film, sport and fitness, music video, TV, children's and special interest programming.

We represent the industry’s interests collectively to: the public, the media, Government and other industry organisations.
