FOCUS 2019 content is sponsored by Production Service Network (PSN), the one-stop shop built to help producers determine where best to film overseas and whom to rely on for local support. Michael Moffett CEO PSN, "PSN chose to sponsor the content this year because we identify with the comprehensive knowledge sharing that takes place at the event. After all, filmmakers call on PSN daily for local production know-how on everything from incentives to comprehensive below-the-line services. There may be no event with a wider array of expertise in our content creation industry under one roof."
