The beginning of this year represents the end of an era at FOCAL: Thomas Geiser recently left in his role as Foundation president, after heading the Council and the Committee for almost seventeen years. Moreover, Pierre Agthe — director of the Foundation's activities since its creation almost thirty years ago — left in March.

The FOCAL foundation was established 25 years ago and has since developed into a creative hub for the film and audiovisual sector. As the audiovisual sector is facing deep change and rapid evolution, FOCAL is seeking to continue its development into a leading centre of innovation in the field, and support top quality audiovisual production through high level internal and international CPD.
