Knowledge Sharing, Film Policy and Co-Productions
Together with the European film industry and members, Cine-Regio is continuously involved in initiating and organising activities in the European regions.
European Film Promotion (EFP) is the only existing international network of organisations promoting and marketing European cinema worldwide. Founded in 1997, the network comprises professional organisations from 35 European countries who are experts in promoting and marketing their own national cinema. Under the EFP umbrella, all of these organisations work together on the promotion of European cinema and talent around the world. Founded by ten members as a non-profit organisation, EFP has since grown into a leading international promotion organisation with a membership of 36 organisations representing 35 countries in Europe– from Portugal in the West to Georgia in the East. While promoting European cinema with joint initiatives under the EFP umbrella, the organization fully respects the culturally rich and unique nature of each of its member’s own cinema heritage. EFP represents the diverse interests of its members through a variety of projects which are taking place under the EFP banner, at different festivals and markets around the globe. EFP’s reliance on the national expertise and know-how of the member institutes has been at the core of the organizational goals since it’s inception, and has been essential to EFP’s ability to achieve sustainable success through a long-term approach to bringing European cinema to audiences around the world.
