EFP (European Film Promotion) not only promotes European films and talent around the world, it also backs marketing campaigns of associated world sales companies to countries outside of Europe via FILM SALES SUPPORT (FSS).

FSS contributes towards additional promotional activities for European films, covering up to 50 percent of marketing costs (see guidelines) at selected non-European film festivals and markets. Requests for FSS must be confirmed by the respective EFP member organisation depending on the country of origin of the film.

Associated world sales companies may choose between single and slate funding. Slate funding allows for coverage of concerted campaigns at the Toronto International Film Festival and a subsequent market, such as the Asian Film Market in Busan, the AFM in Los Angeles or the FILMART in Hong Kong. FILM SALES SUPPORT is funded by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union.

Please consult our FSS guidelines how to become associated to EFP.
