UK in Focus magazine launches
The British Film Commission has launched new location filming magazine UK in Focus at the Cannes Film Festival, in partnership with MBI publications Screen and Broadcast.
The new magazine showcases upcoming productions that have filmed across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and also spotlights the UK’s world-class production infrastructure and experienced crew base.
“It has been a real pleasure working with our new partners, MBI,” said Adrian Wootton, chief executive of the British Film Commission and Film London. “We have collaboratively produced a publication with genuinely interesting content which also showcases the breadth of skills, facilities and talent on offer throughout the UK.”
UK in Focus includes features looking at Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange, which filmed partly in south-east England, a focus on the latest season of Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland, and an overview of available filming spaces throughout the UK.
UK in Focus will be distributed by Screen International and Broadcast at Cannes, Mipcom, MipTV, Media Summit, Media Production Show, Toronto, AFM, Berlin, AFCI Locations Show and Hong Kong Filmart.
