support for films from switzerland

EFP additionally offers FSS for the promotion of films from Switzerland outside of Europe thanks to the 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.
 
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 upcoming new call for FSS Diversity).
