EUROPEAN SHOOTING STARS and PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE Alumni Present 33 Films at the Berlin International Film Festival 2019

06.02.2019 - EFP (European Film Promotion) and its member organisations are delighted to announce that a record number of 52 participants of our talent platforms …


Each year at the Cannes Film Festival, 20 promising, up-and-coming producers from throughout Europe are selected to participate in PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE. The initiative is aimed at connecting young, enterprising European producers with potential co-production partners, strengthening their industry networks and, at the same time, providing a solid and visible platform for this next generation of European filmmakers. The producers go through a rigorous selection process which places the top contenders in a tightly focused working environment during the festival. They take part in project pitching, 1:1 meetings and case studies, social events and an extensive press campaign, which includes online presentation and profiles in the international trades.

Criteria for participation:

The programme is open to 20 producers from 20 different European countries.

The nomination of each national participant is made by the respective national EFP member organisation.

The final selection of the 20 participants is based on a point system which considers the following criteria:

  • the producer's experience in an international co-production (at least one international co-production) is a pre-requisite. The selection process favours producers who have been majority producers.
    If candidates were the majority producers in more than three international co-productions, they, unfortunately, are too experienced for PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE

  • the producer's feature length film(s) have had a theatrical release and /or a VoD / SVoD / DVD / TV release outside of the production countries involved

  • the producer has had a feature length film screened in the international section at a major festival

  • the producer's feature length film was awarded Best Film in the producer's home country ie recipient of a national film award

  • the producer has a strong project suitable for an international co-production

If you are interested in participating in Producers on the Move 2019, please contact the national EFP member organsiation by 12 March.
