Applications Now Open!

We are delighted to announce that applications are now open for FOCUS. We are now inviting screen companies in Scotland to apply to take part.

FOCUS is a business development opportunity for established companies in Scotland working in film, television or animation, in any genre or format.

Applications will take place in at least two phases. In this first phase, up to ten companies will be selected to take part. Applicants who are not successful in the first round will be given feedback and will be able to re-apply when the second round is launched.

What's on Offer

FOCUS is an opportunity for you to grow and strengthen your screen sector business. Companies who are selected to participate will first of all work with an expert business advisor to analyse the company's needs, and create a Business Development Strategy.

In the second stage of participation, companies will access sector specific expertise in areas such as finance, royalties, book scouting, production, international co-production, and audience development, in order to grow their business.
