FNE together with Europa Cinemas continues its Cinema of the Month series. In recognition of the hard work and excellence of European cinema operators we choose a cinema from each country covered by FNE each month. We look at the challenges and the successes faced by those cinemas with a special series of interviews that offer insights that other operators can benefit from and a platform for the exchange of ideas. This month we focus on Romania and Daniela Bacanu who is manager of the Romanian Director's New Cinema Theatre (NCRR) in Bucharest.

Throughout Cannes FNE will be highlighting the new projects being developed by scriptwriters working with ScripTeast. ScripTeast (www.scriptesat.pl) is supported by the MEDIA programme of the EU and the Polish Film Institute (www.pisf.pl) and is one of the most successful script development programmes in Europe with many of the scripts going on to be produced as successful films.

Today we highlight:

A number of exciting European producers, who have been selected for European Film Promotion's (EFP) successful networking platform PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE in 2012 and over the past years, will see their films screened in various sections at this year's Cannes International Film Festival (May 16 - 27). The three 2012 participants with films and projects at Cannes are: Sinisa Juričić from Croatia with Sofia's Last Ambulance, Trent from The Netherlands with Villegas, and Monica Lazurean-Gorgan from Romania with Touch Me Not. Launched in 2000, PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE is annually rolled out at Cannes and has become a label for emerging producers from across Europe. Financial backing comes from the MEDIA Programme, the EFP member organisations selecting the participants, as well as from additional partners.
