Also on the same two days and returning to the venue is Focus the meeting place for international film location production. Bringing together all sectors from the production industry and offering high value contacts with market experts and leading representatives this event is designed as a knowledge sharing and networking platform for those who are looking to maximise their expertise by putting into practice new production solutions suited to their budget.
