EFP (European Film Promotion) is an international network of film promotion institutes from 37 countries from throughout Europe, each representing their national films and talent abroad. Under the EFP flag, these organisations team up to jointly promote the diversity and spirit of European cinema and talent at key 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.


Memorandum of Understanding for EFP
on Diversity & Inclusion

We value diversity and would like to see this reflected in our work. We encourage and welcome all nominations/applications regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic and social origin, attributed disability, age as well as sexual orientation and identity.

EFP actively supports and encourages gender balance, diversity and inclusion in its programmes, activities, strategies as well as in staff matters.

Some of the ways EFP currently supports gender balance, diversity and inclusion in its programmes are:

  • selection of only one film/talent per country to underline European diversity
  • selection criteria which often specifies submissions must be divers in terms of gender and ethnic background
  • presenting public panels and industry talks which raise the awareness for the topic / cover issues of gender, diversity and inclusion
  • requiring diversity when seeking jury members, panelists, speakers

EFP is a founding member of ARTEF (Anti-Racism Taskforce for European Film) which tackles institutional racism in the European film industry on a pan-European level.
