European Film Promotion (EFP) is online with a newly designed website. The new online image of EFP presents itself in a clear, concise and user-friendly manner at www.efp-online.com. The website, moreover, offers free access to the constantly updated bio- and filmographies of young actors, producers and distributors with whom EFP has worked since 1997 in its various programmes. "We have now found a design which reflects EFP's extensive range of activities and offers a complementary service for filmmakers and cineastes," explains EFP managing director Renate Rose.
With national export and promotion organisations from 30 countries, EFP is uniquely positioned to promote and market European cinema - and the talent behind it - throughout the world. Currently, EFP is preparing SHOOTING STARS - Europe's best young actors to be showcased at the 59th Berlin International Film Festival (05. - 15.02.09). In order to give SHOOTING STARS an even higher profile, EFP has recently launched an own website for this programme. www.shooting-stars.eu is a unique platform for European acting talent, providing an archive with the biographies of all of the SHOOTING STARS since 1998 and publishing up-to-date news about the programme during the Berlinale.
