EFP unveils 2012 'Producers on the Move' names
24/04/2012 - A group of 25 dynamic and handpicked producers from across Europe will take part in EFP’s networking platform 'Producers on the Move' between May 19–22 during the Cannes International Film Festival (May 16 – 27).
During the four-day-event, the producers will benefit both from branding and networking. Various forums provide them with contacts with people from the film industry and press as well as information on producing and financing in various European countries. Round-table and one-to-one meetings will offer the chance to pitch current projects and to brainstorm on future European co-productions.
At EFP’s Producers’ Lunch, the programme’s participants will also be able to network with former participants who may be good partners for upcoming projects.
Already in its 13th year, the event will welcome a producer from Georgia (Vladimer Katcharava) for the first a time. Many of this year’s participants have produced feature films as well as documentaries, some are additionally active in the field of animation. With internationally acclaimed titles such as Inside America, produced by Constanze Schumann (Austria), Superclasico [trailer], produced by Signe Leick Jensen (Denmark), and Turn Me On, Goddammit [trailer], produced by Brede Hovland (Norway), they are among the emerging producers who are the ones to watch in the future.
Other participants will be presenting their films in one of the sections of the Cannes Film Festival: Trent, from the Netherland’s NFI Productions (Nederlands Film Instituut) will see Gonzalo Tobal’s Villegas in a Special Screening, Monica Lazurean-Gorgan, from Romania’s 4 Proof Film, will be present with Adina Pintille’s project Touch Me Not in Cinéfondation Atelier.
