EFP's programme PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE takes place hybrid this year with an online part (3 - 5 May 2022) prior to this year's Cannes Film Festival and on-site networking events during the festival (19 - 23 May 2022).

EFP is looking for producers who have completed at least one international co-production, but not more than three. Interested candidates need to contact the respective EFP member institute of the country in which the producer is based.

The two-part programme with a three-half-day pre-festival and five half days in Cannes aims at connecting enterprising producers with potential co-production partners and strengthening their international industry networks. The programme, online and physically, is underpinned by a promotion and press campaign, creating international visibility and opportunities for the producers.

EFP started PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE 23 years ago. Many of the selected producers have become international industry players and partnered after their participation in the programme.Their works are screened at A-festivals around the world, have won awards, including the Academy Award.

PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE is financially backed by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating national film institutes, EFP's member organisations.

Interested candidates need to contact the respective EFP member institute of the country in which the producer is based.
