See NL is member of European Film Promotion (EFP). In 1997 EFP was launched with 10 founding members and has meanwhile become a leading international promotion organisation in Europe. The membership has now risen to 37 organisations from 36 countries in Europe.
EFP offers and follows through on a broad range of promotional strategies for the European film industry, which include artistic as well as business-oriented platforms focusing on three main areas: Promotion of Films & Talent, Access to International Markets and Film Sales Support (FSS). EFP has primarily developed B-to-B programmes and initiatives in collaboration with established and respected partners, with the aim of creating a sustainable system which supports European cinema inside and outside of Europe.
European diversity and the European spirit are essential to all EFP initiatives: European values, the freedom of speech, the full integration of the culturally rich and unique nature of national cinema and its heritage rooted in the EFP membership.
EFP therefore relies on the national expertise and know-how of each of the 37 member organisations that represent their national film industry, covering most of Europe. This has been key to EFP's ability to become a leading international promotion organisation and achieve sustainable success through a long term approach of bringing European cinema to the attention of the international industry, press and audiences around the world. EFP's numerous and manifold projects at festivals and markets around the globe are a direct result of the divers interests and the mutual goals of its member institutions.
EFP represents a true network of industry professionals whose goal it is to increase the circulation and exploitation of European films in Europe and internationally.
EFP organizes special events at the Berlin, Cannes, Karlovy Vary, Sydney, Busan and Toronto International Film Festivals.
