As part of the new cooperation between EUROPEAN FILM PROMOTION (EFP) and the BALKAN FILM MARKET (BFM) to foster networks and co-production activities in Eastern Europe, the BFM has selected and invited PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE (PoM) to meet with their colleagues from the Balkan film industry in Tirana, Albania, from October 3 – 7. Eleven producers, who were selected for PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE based on their expertise and international experience, will take part in the intensive industry programme organised by BFM, including two with projects selected for PITCH BALKAN: 1985 from the Romanian producer Dan Burlac, and A Scream as a Beautiful Song by the producer-director Viktor Taus from the Czech Republic.

Ilir Butka - Chairman Albanian Center of Cinematography holds the new cooperation with EFP in high esteem: "If cinema savvies would look up four words to describe the current situation of the filmmaking landscape in the Western Balkans, they would probably come up with the definition of 'low production capacity countries'. Personally, I would define it as 'cinema with small funding, but with great creative richness and colourful individuality'. We are far from perfect and vibrantly chaotic, but we remain genuine and unpredictable, inspired by stories that one can only find in the Western Balkans, against a background of locations and characters equally shocking and emotional.

I thank EFP for its support of the initiative and for bringing Producers on the Move to the Balkan Film Market. The market constitutes a platform that offers ideal opportunities for exchange and cooperation. Producers looking for something definitely not big budget, but artistically inspirational are more than welcome at the Balkan Film Market."
