European Film Promotion - EFP

The innovative network of European promotion and export organizations


The EUROPEAN FILM PROMOTION network brings together 38 national promotion and export organizations from 37 European countries. Since its founding in 1997 EFP has occupied a key position in the worldwide promotion of European cinema and its talent.

EFP's aims:

  • to strengthen the presence of European films at international markets
  • to support European filmmakers at international markets
  • to create new markets for European films
  • to expand the sales possibilities for European films
  • to network and exchange professional skills within the European film scene

EFP concentrates on international market opportunities for European films and the young filmmakers who are already established in their home countries and need support on the international level. With SHOOTING STARS at the Berlin film festival and PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE in Cannes, EFP has sensitized the international press and public to take greater notice of European films and the artists working in this field.
