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 available for:

FSS Classic for the attendance at selected physical (hyprid) film festivals and markets outside of Europe (campaigns for physical promotion material with a strong emphasis on additional digital strategies)

FSS Digital for online participation at the online version of selected film festivals and markets outside of Europe* (campaigns for purely digital strategies)

*FSS will also be available for the online version of the European Film Market (EFM) and the online version of the Marché du Cannes. These two most important events are attended by buyers from countries outside of Europe.

These calls invite European sales agents who have registered in the Participant Register of the European Commission and have been approved by the national film promotion institutes to submit applications by set deadlines (see below). 

important information

As EFP is still in the process of applying to Creative Europe MEDIA for FSS 2021/2022, individual grant confirmations and disbursements are subject to the signing of the contract between EFP and Creative Europe MEDIA at the end of 2021. This means that all costs which are part of the FSS application to EFP are undertaken at the world companies' own risk with no claim to EFP should funding not become available from the European Commission.

Updated Guidelines will follow very soon. Please get in touch with Susanne Davis (davis@efp-online.com) or Cornelia Klimkeit (klimkeit@efp-online.com) if you have any questions concerning applications.

support for films from Switzerland

EFP additionally offers FSS for the promotion of films from Switzerland outside of Europe thanks to new international measures by the Federal Office of Culture, Media Desk Suisse and SWISS FILMS. This support has been confirmed and takes immediate effect.

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