Pia Lundberg of the Swedish Film Institute as Vice President of the European Film Promotion comments on FRED about the secret of the success of the networking platform Producers on the Move, which celebrates its 17th edition this year. She also announces two new initiatives the EFP will carry on: Future Frames at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and the 10 Women Directors to watch at the Sydney Film Festival. The latter initiative marks the first time EFP, the Sydney Film Festival and Variety have joined forces to initiate “European Cinema: 10 Women Filmmakers to Watch,” presenting ten exceptional European women storytellers.
20 of the most energetic, emerging producers from across Europe are selected to participate in the networking platform PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE at the Cannes International Film Festival. EFP has set a high standard for participation and creates a tightly focused working environment involving project pitchings, 1:1 meetings as well as extensive promotion of the producers via profiles in the international trade papers. The aim of this initiative is to assist European producers in finding partners for their upcoming projects, to strengthen industry networking opportunities and to offer a platform where the producer’s potential is recognised.
