With the aim of creating a greater awareness for new, groundbreaking European cinema and the young, promising directing talent behind it, European Film Promotion   launched a new programme at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (Czech Republic) after 17 successful years of presenting the “Variety Critics’ Choice: Europe Now!” sidebar.

In July 2015, EFP focused it's attention on a selection of ten outstanding film students and graduates, ushering in a new generation of directors from film schools throughout Europe. Working in close cooperation with the festival, EFP introduced the young directors and their films to the public, film industry and press during three days of events and screenings.

As a forum for film-makers, producers, distributors, sales agents, festival programmers and press, the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival is regarded as a key international event, acting as a bridge between the countries and cultures of Western, Central and Eastern Europe, and continues to foster its reputation as a hub for young cinema.

The following 10 films and their directors had been selected by KVIFF to take part in the first edition of FUTURE FRAMES:
