looking for europe's most promising up-and-coming international producers

EFP's programme PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE is split between a three-day online session prior to this year's Cannes Film Festival and on-site networking events during the festival (18 - 22 May 2023).

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 these criteria.

The producers go through a rigorous selection process which places the top contenders in a tightly focused working environment. They take part in project pitching, 1:1 meetings and case studies, social events and an extensive promotion campaign, which includes online presentation and an introduction in the international trades.

Each year, 20 promising, up-and-coming producers from throughout Europe are selected to participate in PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE - 477 over the last 23 years. 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.

Producers interested in participating in PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE 2023 should contact their national film promotion institutes (EFP's member organisations). The final selection process starts right after the Berlin International Film Festival.
