Antonio Abete, Filmmaster Events CEO, said: "The new opening in London is not our final objective: it is a step forward in the process of internationalisation which we have been working on."

Andrea Francisi, Filmmaster Events COO, added: "The London branch will have a strategic role and will become our bridge between East and West. It will allow us to stay closer to our clients and be more prompt and efficient in answering our partners’ demands".
