THE CHANGING FACE OF EUROPE: NEW EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARIES, Hot Docs in Toronto

Putting a focus on outstanding documentary productions from Europe, EFP has initiated this programme in collaboration with Hot Docs. For the third time in 2020, a dedicated section of the festival presented European filmmakers and their work.

Under the title THE CHANGING FACE OF EUROPE the showcase focuses on European diversity with films that explore and examine timely topics of urgency – immigration, populist movements, the new economic anxiety - within the landscape of contemporary Europe. The films address themes which are especially compelling for the North American public at this politically charged time. The filmmakers selected for THE CHANGING FACE OF EUROPE, will also participate in intensive and valuable industry activities, including workshops, pitches and meetings with potential buyers, all aimed at furthering their international contacts and careers, as well as offering opportunities for the sales of their films worldwide. To complement this initiative, EFP offers FILM SALES SUPPORT for world sales companies marketing European Films at Hot Docs.
