About The Team

Behind this successful production company is a set of passionate and professional individuals driven by a common goal: to elevate the status of the Philippines as a premier filming location, and to help share stories from the world’s most talented filmmakers. This team of creative visionaries has worked hand in hand over the years to perfect the craft that PFSI is known for today.

Founded by Lope “Jun” Juban, Jr. in 1979, PFSI has evolved into a full-scale family affair with Jun sharing the passion and art of filmmaking with his children. Jun’s father and brother were the cornerstones that the company built its foundation on and their work paved the way for the company to flourish years after. To this day, Jun and the rest of the family continues to champion the local filmmaking industry, welcoming crews and production teams from the United States, Spain, South Korea, France, United Kingdom, Sweden, Israel, Serbia, Bulgaria, India, Norway, United Arab Emirates, Japan, South Africa, Russia, and Hong Kong to name a few. 40 plus years of consistent excellence, with many more ahead.
