The CTBF (Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund) is the leading UK charity for people working behind the scenes in the film, cinema and television industries, whose careers cover all aspects of pre-production and beyond, from script to screen and in a variety of roles. For creatives, production professionals, marketers and administration staff, the CTBF exists for those with a need and it offers financial support to those who encounter accident, illness, bereavement or unemployment. Its chief executive is Richard Wilson.[1]

It raises money through events such as the Royal Film Performance, an annual film evening attended by HM The Queen or other members of the British Royal Family, and from membership subscriptions and donations.

As well as helping those who have worked in the Film and TV industries, the CTBF also supports up and coming talent in Film and TV through the JBAs (John Brabourne Awards), which provides financial assistance of between £1000 and £5000.
