This chapter identifies and assesses the significance of a range of factors and processes that have informed British cult cinema, from the late 1960s to the present. Consequently, the chapter focuses on the contextual and textual factors that informed the production of the key canonical British cult film titles in the late 1960s and 1970s, but also considers the roles of a range of cross-media relations, changing media platforms, critical and academic developments, and fan practices and cultures in the continued development of British cult film culture throughout the 1990s, 2000s and up to the present day.
