The association was set up in 2007 by the great majority of the UK's significant numbers of experienced and innovative film sales companies (often called "sales agents"). The UK is one of only three countries boasting  such a concentration, the others being USA and France.

The members of the association handle the licensing and international distribution of UK and non-UK produced and co-produced feature films and other audio-visual content in all genres, media and formats.
