The European Film Market (EFM), the business component of Berlinale, is one of the most important international film industry gatherings. EFM brings together film buyers and sellers, producers, distributors and financiers to get up-to-date on the latest productions and developments in the global film scene, negotiate film rights and make or foster business relationships. More than 9,000 exhibitors, license traders, producers, buyers and investors are expected over the nine market days.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Creative BC will accept applications from BC resident feature film producers who meet the following criteria:
- Must have one producer credit on a feature length film; and
