The programme has been financially supported by the MEDIA Programme and the participating EFP member organisations who choose their national participants.
The schedule includes working sessions, one-to-one speed-dating meetings and opportunities to exchange knowledge and follow up discussions on future projects. EFP will be teaming up with the European cultural channel ARTE and the pan-European coproduction fund Eurimages.
