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 is currently available only for wholly digital promotion campaigns, including at important international events, targeting overseas buyers. FSS offers two different incentives:

  • Ready-To-Use Digital Promotion Campaigns with a universal approach that can be used or adapted by buyers from countries outside of Europe (see guidelines)

  • FSS OPEN CALL for digital promotion campaigns to secure the distribution and circulation of European films to countries outside of Europe (see guidelines)

The call for Ready-to-use Digital Promotion Campaigns will be launched in August and is open until May 2021.

The first OPEN CALL for digital promotion campaigns in the second half of 2020 will be launched in August and is open until November 2020. The second OPEN CALL for campaigns in the first half of 2021 will be launched in December 2020 and is open until May 2021.

Applications for FSS are confirmed subject to the signing of the contract with Creative Europe - MEDIA and by the respective EFP member organisation depending on the country of origin of the film.

EFP manages separate funding from our member organisation, SWISS FILMS for the promotion of films from Switzerland (please contact EFP for further information).

FILM SALES SUPPORT is funded by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union.
