EFP (European Film Promotion) and its member organisations have again selected 20 of the most promising up-and-coming European producers to take part in EFP's high-profile networking platform Producers on the Move at the 70th Cannes Film Festival (17-28 May). During the five-day event between May 19 and 23, the exclusive group will enjoy a tailor-made programme of roundtable pitching sessions, 1:1 speed dating, case studies, including one in cooperation with the pan-European co-production fund Eurimages, as well as other industry meetings. All of these events are being organized to support the exchange of experiences and help create new professional networks. The longstanding programme is financially backed by the Creative Europe - MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating EFP member organisations.
