About Us

DCUK panel event at the Apple Store, Covent Garden, London

Digital Creators UK champions creators of social and streaming arts and entertainment.

It is organised on a voluntary basis by experienced creators with backgrounds and expertise spanning film, television, advertising, web, social & mobile media and technology.


Like most associations of web series creators formalising in cities across the globe, DCUK started life as an informal meeting of filmmakers of all disciplines in a pub in the middle of 2011.

Fast forward to February 2014 and our core group met to discuss the development of a more formalised association in response to the growing need from the industry for a voice to represent, support and champion web series creators and their work in all its forms on all emerging platforms.
