European Film Promotion (EFP) with PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE at the International Film Festival in Cannes (May 14 – 25, 2008)

22 of Europe’s most outstanding young producers selected for Cannes

22 of Europe’s most ambitious young producers will be travelling to Cannes this year for EFP’s programme PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE (May 17 – 20, 08) at the international film festival. The members of European Film Promotion have selected talents who have caused a stir in their home country with their quality productions and already made a mark in some cases on an international level. The initiative to promote young producers is supported financially by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, the EFP member organisations and sponsors.

PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE has established itself in the past nine years as the ideal platform for promising European producers. EFP attracts the attention from the international film industry and press for the participants in Cannes, the world’s biggest film festival. A roundtable meeting, moreover, gives them the opportunity to speak concretely with the other PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE about the themes, planning and financing of current projects and discuss ideas for future works. And a Co-Production Lunch also sees EFP bringing the participants together with established producers from all over Europe.

Renate Rose, EFP managing director, stresses: “Particularly for young producers, it is extremely important that they can network with producers from other European countries and have an exchange of ideas on a high international level. We will put the PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE in the spotlight over three days in the international daily trade newspapers in Cannes, and we know from our experience of the past years that they make use of this opportunity.”

As Gregory Athanasiou, Greek Producer on the Move in 2007, says: “During PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE 2007, I signed a beautiful deal with Zentropa and Trust Film Sales for all of my movies! And, of course, my participation in the project was a great support for that!”

This year will again see an interesting group of young feature film producers travelling to Cannes. They include such talents as the Frenchman Marc-Antoine Robert (2.4.7. Films/ Persepolis) and the Swede Fredrik Heinig (St Paul Film/ Darling) who already achieved major international successes with their first films.

Others like Sigrid Hoerner (moneypenny filmproduktion, One Day in Europe) were invited with their films to leading international film festivals, already have experience with international co-productions or are involved like the Spaniard Manuel Cristóbal, (Perro Verde Films) in committees for European cinema.

The following producers were selected by the EFP member organisations:
