EFP (European Film Promotion) has been overwhelmed by the rising demand for this year's virtual EUROPE! UMBRELLA at the FILMART in Hong Kong. 40 European sales companies from 12 European countries will be presenting their latest films at one of Asia's most important film markets, which will take place online from 26 – 29 August this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Another two films in this year's Venice International Critics' Week are being presented by the Italian sales company Intramovies (Thou Shalt Not Hate by Mauro Mancini) and France's MPM Premium (Ghosts by Azra Deniz Okyay). Notturno by Gianfranco Rosi has been selected for the Toronto International Film Festival's "Masters“ section and will be presented by The Match Factory. The winner of the Cristal Award at this year's Annecy Online Film Festival, Calamity, is being promoted by Indie Sales. Other hot titles from this year's Berlinale line-up that are being brought to buyers' attention at the Asian market include Charlatan by Agnieszka Holland (Germany/Films Boutique), Curveball – A True Story. Unfortunately by Johannes Naber (Germany/Arri Media) and Pari by Siamak Etemadi (Greece/Heretic).

Apart from the established companies Filmax (representing Cross the Line by David Victori) and Latido (representing Wishlist by Álvaro Díaz Lorenzo), another two sales companies from Spain will be participating in the EUROPE! UMBRELLA for the first time: Bendita Film Sales is promoting The August Virgin by Jonás Trueba, while Moonrise Pictures will be presenting The Offering by Ventura Durall.
