EFP promotes the depth and diversity of Europe's acting talent while expanding and solidifying their relationships with the professional industry at one of the world's most important film festivals, the Berlinale. The Actors Industry Network (AIN) is a tailor-made program for the selected 10 European Shooting Stars who are on the verge of an international career.
This industry-driven programme brings together the international film industry who are gathering from around the globe on occasion of the festival.
In a highly competitive and ever changing film industry, it is vital to build and nurture sustainable networks. EFP offers this unique opportunity to the Shooting Stars to connect and network with International Casting Directors, Talent Agents and Producers within the framework of the AIN. The platform aims to give the young talent the chance to forge, broaden and strengthen industry alliances in Europe and around the globe.
Since 2018, EFP is collaborating with the Berlinale's Coproduction Market, widening its industry approach by offering additional meetings between the actors and international producers. In addition EFP has introduced a series of one-on-one meetings between Casting Directors and producers.
With the support of two major Casting Associations – The International Casting Directors Network (ICDN) and The Casting Society of America (CSA), the AIN develops a strong and relevant industry component within the SHOOTING STARS program.
The International Casting Directors Network has been a loyal partner of EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS since its inception in 2005. The Berlin-based association of more than 80 Casting Directors from 24 countries offers its members the opportunity to engage on an international level in order to address issues of importance to their profession, such as work methods and best practice. Annually, almost half of the ICDN members attend the Berlin International Film Festival in order to meet the newest contingent of up and comers, the EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS. www.theicdn.com

The Actors Industry Network, created by EFP, is a crucial centerpiece of the EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS programme. It provides a finely tuned structure where actors and casting directors can meet just as the actors are launching international careers. The results have been consistent and impressive: 8 out of 10 SHOOTING STARS from previous editions have been cast in international co-productions.
