EUROPE! Hub at the Sundance Film Festival28 January – 3 February 2021

In 2021, for the first time, EFP cooperated with the Sundance Film Festival to spotlight the rich array of European cinema presented at the festival (28 January – 3 February). EFP's virtual EUROPE! Hub at Sundance promoted and connected the European films and filmmakers to the industry, with a focus on North American distributors.

An essential part of the original idea – developed together with Sundance, prior to the pandemic – was to host and be present on-site with a new centrally located meeting spot for Europeans: EUROPE! Hub at Sundance. With this new approach, we planned to heighten the awareness of European films and the European industry at the festival. EUROPE! Hub at Sundance would be a visible and clearly branded place to meet, work and relax with other Europeans attending the festival (sales companies, filmmakers, producers, institutions and press). EFP's EUROPE! Hub – a central gathering spot at this bustling festival and a one-stop-shop for all things European.

We look forward to achieving this goal – onsite, at the festival – in 2022.
