EFP (European Film Promotion) not only promotes European films and talent around the world, it also backs marketing campaigns of associated world sales companies to countries outside of Europe via FILM SALES SUPPORT (FSS).
FSS has two strands: FSS classic and FSS for ready-to-use digital promotion campaigns.
FSS classic invests in additional promotional activities for European films, covering up to 50 percent of marketing costs at selected non-European film festivals and markets. FSS for ready-to-use digital promotion campaigns invests in universal and innovative digital strategies that can be used or adapted by overseas distributors. The call for this strand is open throughout the year. (see guidelines classic / guidelines ready-to-use ).
Applications for FSS must be confirmed by the respective EFP member organisation depending on the country of origin of the film.
There is one important exception: As EFP manages separate funding from our member organisation SWISS FILMS, applications for the promotion of films from Switzerland are not affected by the budget reduction. Please find here the previous guidelines which still apply to these applications, i.e. a maximum of three applications per company for a festival and two for a market.
FILM SALES SUPPORT is funded by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union.
