Zorica Nusheva and Stefan Vujisic in GOD EXISTS, HER NAME IS PETRUNYA by Teona Strugar Mitevska (North Macedonia / Belgium / Slovenia / Croatia and France 2019)

Each year, 20 up and coming producers from 20 different countries from throughout Europe are selected to participate in PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE at the Cannes Film Festival. The four-day programme aims at connecting enterprising young producers with international potential co-production partners and strengthening their industry networks. The programme is underpinned by a digital promotion campaign and a press campaign in the international trades, creating visibility and opportunity for the producers.
European Film Promotion started this programme 20 years ago – more than 400 producers have participated since then. Most of them have become internationally respected producers, their works are screened at the top festivals around the world, winning numerous awards, including the Oscar®. PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE is financially backed by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating EFP member organisations since its inception.

EFP is delighted with the outcome of PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE: "We see so many co-productions as a result of Producers on the Move, such as Teona Strugar Mitevska's God Exists, Her Name is Petrunya which just premiered in the Berlinale Competition. It is a co-production between Labina Mitevska (North Macedonia) and Zednka Gold (Croatia) among others. Both met during the programme in 2013, where they also met Romanian Anka Puiu. Three years later their first co-production Cristi Puiu's Sieranevada premiered in Competition in Cannes." says Sonja Heinen, Managing Director of EFP. "And we are, of course, enthusiastic about the fact that almost 50 % of the former participants are women."

The programme is open to 20 producers from 20 different European countries. The interested producers/production companies must have completed at least one international co-production. The final selection of the 20 participants is based on a point system which considers the following criteria:

  • the producer's experience in an international co-production (at least one international co-production) is a pre-requisite. The selection process favours producers who have been majority producers.
    If candidates were the majority producers in more than three international co-productions, they, unfortunately, are too experienced for PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE
  • the producer's feature length film(s) have had a theatrical release and /or a VoD / SVoD / DVD / TV release outside of the production countries involved;
  • the producer has had a feature length film screened in the international section at a major festival;
  • the producer's feature length film was awarded Best Film in the producer's home country ie recipient of a national film award;
  • the producer has a strong project suitable for an international co-production.

Producers who are interested in participating in PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE 2019, should contact their national film promotion institutes (EFP member organisations) by 12 March.
