Toronto International Film Festival September 2021


EFP (European Film Promotion) organises an EUROPEAN UMBRELLA for its member organisations and for European world sales companies at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Due to the Corona Pandemic, the industry part of TIFF will be held online this year. Please click here for all European promotion agencies and titles representet at the EUROPE! UMBRELLA 2020.

In order to highlight the diversity of European cinema and enhance its visibility at one of the world's key festivals, EFP has been organising and operating this stand - since 2016 - for those EFP members not present with individual stands. The EUROPE! UMBRELLA represents films selected by the festival as well as the latest national productions. It is normally based in the Industry Centre at the festival headquarters, the Hyatt Hotel; the large stand serves as a central meeting point and is open for business meetings and one-stop shopping for information about all the films from the participating European countries. This year, the joint European presence will be hosted online. The EUROPE! UMBRELLA is part of a growing industry presence at TIFF that serves as a gateway to the North American market.
