PRESIDENT OF UNICEF UK
and now Chair of Patron’s FOCAL International!
Celebrated British filmmaker Lord Puttnam of Queensgate has agreed to become FOCAL International’s Chair of Patrons.
As such he will help to bring on board other eminent Patrons to represent the international membership of FOCAL and co-ordinate their work for the benefit of the whole audiovisual industry.
His presence at leading FOCAL events such as the next FOCAL International Awards in May 2006 will be invaluable, as will be the introductions he can help the organization foster at the highest level.
Lord Puttnam has identified a number of key areas where he can lend his weight, helping to raise the profile of FOCAL International through its association with his name and reputation.
