The screenings, which are supported by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, EYE Film Institute Netherlands, Irish Film Board and German Films, will be shown at the Tribeca Grand Hotel's screening room, and the respective sales agents will be in attendance. All of the films are seeking US distribution.

Since the program first began in 2005, approximately 25% of the films screened in this series have subsequently secured US distribution.
According to Penny Wolf, Head of Sales and Distribution for Goldcrest Films, "We are delighted to have Eyeworks' STRICKEN included in this year's screenings. This is a wonderful platform giving great support to the European film industry by creating an event which brings specialty European films directly to US buyers."
