Toronto International Film Festival 7-17 September 2023

EFP organises and runs a EUROPE! UMBRELLA at the Toronto International Film Festival annually.
The aim is to increase awareness for European cinema, particularly on a Business-to-Business level, to offer the European and the international industry a platform to network, and to boost the distribution and circulation of European films worldwide.
Everybody interested in Europe is invited to join the stand which serves as a promotion base for all European films at TIFF and also as an info center for all things European. European sales companies and national film promotion institutes from many European countries are present at that stand.
