HAMBURG: European Film Promotion selected 20 producers, including producers from Czech Republic, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia, to participate in the networking platform Producers on the Move at the Cannes Film Festival (13- 24 May 2015). FNE will once again team up with EFP in promoting the event.
For the first time, the number of participants has been limited to 20 in order to give the event the utmost effect promotion-wise and to build up long-lasting business relations across borders. Now in its 16th year, the event runs from 15 to 18 May 2015 and receives financial support from the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating EFP member organisations.
The schedule includes working sessions such as one-to-one speed-dating meetings and various opportunities to exchange knowledge and follow up ideas about future projects. EFP will again be teaming up with the pan-European coproduction fund Eurimages for a case study.
