Tokyo International Film Festival: 10 October
American Film Market (AFM): 11 October

Who may submit?

  • European world sales companies registered in the Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal of the European Commission and approved by the respective European film promotion institute

  • Fiction films, animation films and documentaries (feature length)

How much is available?

Support for films from Switzerland
EFP additionally offers FSS for the promotion of films from Switzerland outside of Europe thanks to new international measures by the Federal Office of Culture, Media Desk Suisse and SWISS FILMS. An application for films from Switzerland has to be submitted separately from an application for European films via the usual online application system.

Important Information
As EFP is still in the process of applying to Creative Europe MEDIA for FSS 2022-24, individual grant confirmations and disbursements are subject to the signing of the contract between EFP and Creative Europe MEDIA at the end of 2022. This means that all costs part of the FSS application to EFP are undertaken at the world sales companies own risk with no claim to EFP should funding not become available from the European Commission.

Gender balance, diversity & inclusion and sustainability are important for EFP.  Therefore, we highly welcome and encourage promotion campaigns that respect the environment as well as the diversity of filmmakers and story lines (see new call for FSS Inclusion).
