A number of exciting European producers, who have been selected for European Film Promotion´s (EFP) successful networking platform PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE in 2012 and over the past years, will see their films screened in various sections at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival (May 16 – 27). The three 2012 participants with films and projects at Cannes are: Siniša Juricic from Croatia with Sofia’s Last Ambulance, Trent from The Netherlands with Villegas, and Monica Lazurean-Gorgan from Romania with Touch Me Not.
Launched in 2000, PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE is annually rolled out at Cannes and has become a label for emerging producers from across Europe. Financial backing comes from the MEDIA Programme, the EFP member organisations selecting the participants, as well as from additional partners.
