With ten works-in-progress and ten completed highlights from a total of 15 European countries, an international panel on co-productions co-hosted by EFP and FSS-support for World Sales to showcase their films, European cinema is excellently represented and highly visible at the American Film Market (9-13 November 2020), which is taking place online this year.
AFM Online 2020 hosts more than 80 sales companies from Europe; Organisations from six EFP countries represent themselves at this years online edition.
The films from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom reflect the wide range of universal themes such as solidarity, randomness of the universe, grief, solitude, friendship, child trafficking, identity and severe loss.
The new European completed films include current and award-winning productions from festivals in Venice, San Sebastian, Rome and Hamburg.
