Information on the release of independent films in the UK and Republic of Ireland, and the income from ticket sales of those in 2012 is depicted in the given table.

Overall, of the total releases, significant impacts in the ticket sales based on proportional releases were made by just three genres: comedy, horror and biopic.

As per the table, out of the total 148 releases, nearly half were dramas and documentaries, divided in equal number (35). The next position in case of releases was for comedy, which accounted for 17.6% of the total share of releases. This was followed by horror and thriller films. Turning to biopic, crime, action and romance, the genres of fewer releases, the least happened in the genre of biopic with just a release.

In case of the collection of income by ticket sales, drama and documentaries had not generated money in proportion to the number of releases. Out of the total share of collection, their contributions were 8.3% and 2.9%. On the other hand, biopic could fetch 9.1% income from the total. However, the top two positions were held by comedy and horror, with 45.4% and 20.2% respectively. It is also noted that out of  five releases, romance films could generate only 0.8% income.
