"Puzzled that this event exists and is completely free – yet provides networking opportunities and panel discussions that are practically on a par with LFF and Cannes. Where's the catch?" Suzanne Gielgud, Gielgud Films. 2018 delegate survey.
There's no catch!
This year FOCUS will offer even more free-to-attend content, covering the hot topics in film, TV, advertising, animation and games.
We are excited to announce our first wave of over 70+ sessions featuring 150+ speakers under the umbrella theme Forces of Change – What’s next?. Whether you are interested in guides to tax incentives and public funding, opportunities for flexible working across the screen industries, insights into co-production and the new streaming landscape or case studies on the latest film releases, TV programmes and commercials – there is an incredible range of content packed across the two days of FOCUS.
To make sure it's completely relevant to the industry, the FOCUS programme is developed in consultation with Pact, The Production Guild, Directors UK, BFI, BFC, UK Screen Alliance, Creative Europe UK, ScreenSkills, Advertising Producers Association and Women in Film & TV. It is presented in association with media partner Variety. This year we are delighted to welcome Production Service Network as a content sponsor.
