European Film Promotion

EFP (European Film Promotion) is a unique network of the national film promotion institutes from 37 countries from throughout Europe, each representing their national films and talent abroad. Under the EFP flag, these organisations come together to jointly promote the diversity and spirit of European cinema and talent at key international film festivals and markets, in particular outside of Europe. EFP is financially supported by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and by its member organisations. The Hamburg-based office is backed by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, the Film Fund Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein and the Ministry of Culture of the City of Hamburg.

EFP Future Frames - Generation NEXT of European Cinema presents ten outstanding directors from film schools and universities from throughout Europe and their short films. Recommended by their national film promotion institutes and selected and hosted by the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, this year’s group of up-and-coming filmmakers includes two Student Academy Award winners and one nominee. The ten outstanding filmmakers take part in a three-day tailor-made networking programme to ease their way into the international film scene supported by extensive promotion and press coverage.
