FOCUS is a new screen business development initiative from Film City Futures
FOCUS is a new initiative by Film City Futures, in partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute, and supported by Creative Scotland and Scottish Enterprise.
A sector review found that screen business were not always able to access the business development expertise that they need in order to achieve significant growth. FOCUS wants to change this, by supporting screen sector companies to gain access to the sector-specific business development expertise that they need from experts in Production, Law, HR, book scouting, sales and distribution, and other areas.
This is an opportunity for companies to invest in their own growth, and participating companies will be required to contribute up to one third of the costs of the support.
The project is a two-year pilot, launching on 18th July, with the first round of 10 participating companies in place by late September. In the meantime, interested companies can register their interest by signing up below.
