This December a few members of the Isle of Media team headed to FOCUS 2017.
FOCUS brings together media professionals from all sectors of the creative screen industries. Designed as a knowledge-sharing and peer-networking platform, FOCUS aims to help filmmakers and producers discover incentives and production solutions to maximise screen value for all budgets. Over two days the conference will include industry leaders sharing their expertise, inspiration and insight through a programme of panel discussions, workshops and presentations.
We were joined by current colleagues and made new connections from other countries and jurisdictions. The Isle of Media was representing the Isle of Man, discussing with producers, directors and location mangers as to how the Isle of Man can facilitate their projects. From locations and talent to company formation and tax benefits, the Isle of Media was showcasing the Isle of Man’s offering for film and TV production, with the team at Isle of Media offering a helping hand to anyone looking to setup their media ventures. With our strong film heritage, the Isle of Man was already well known as a diverse set of locations, supported by a helpful talented community.
