19 titles presented by the European Film Promotion
At the 17th Busan International Film Festival
, European Film Promotion, after an intimate co-work with the festival, is going to provide a time and place to introduce interesting movies and directors from all around Europe to network with people and give various presentations. Moreover, just like the last 6 years, EFP is going to arrange an European Umbrella Office at the Asia Film Market to help distribute European films. These kinds of programs are supported by European Union’s media programs and the sponsors of EFP.
At this year’s Busan International Film Festival, 87 European films among 300 titles are planned to be screened at many different sections. 25 titles that have caught the eyes of EFP are the ones that have been well received in Europe, loved by many festivals and have originalities. Among them, 19 directors are to actually come to Busan and give pitching on their own work and 5 titles have already been chosen to the Flash Foward Award competitive section.
EFP is supported by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and by its member organizations. In addition, EFP’s promotion and PR activities are backed by the Centre National de la Cinématographie et de l'image animée (CNC) as well as by private sponsors. The Hamburgbased office is financially supported by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, the Ministry of Culture and Media of the City of Hamburg and the EFP member organizations.
