Promoting European films and the talent behind it to Asia's unique public and ever growing industry is one of the pioneering initiatives of EFP (European Film Promotion).
Every year European directors and actors are welcomed to South Korea's major film event, the Busan International Film Festival (October 12-21, 2017), to present their films and to engage in discussions with the enthusiastic Korean audiences and meet with key Asian and international industry players.
EUROPE! goes Busan shines a light on the spirit and the diversity of European cinema.
Paying heed to the industry aspect of the festival EFP has extended its activities to the Asian Film Market (October 14-17, 2017). Ever since its launch in 2006 EFP offers a hub for European world sales companies to do business under: the EUROPEAN UMBRELLA, whose synergetic effect proves to be very effective. In conjunction with granting FILM SALES SUPPORT for the promotion and marketing of European films presented at BIFF the initiative has increased the number of sales to the Asian market significantly.
EUROPE! goes Busan is financially supported by Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating EFP member organisations.
