EFP opens applications for this year's Producers on the Move
18 Feb 2021 : News Desk
Producers On The Move
Each year, 20 promising, up-and-coming producers from throughout Europe are selected to participate in Producers on the Move; 444 producers in total over its 21 years.

Last year, John Wallace of Cowtown Pictures (Rialto) was selected as Ireland’s Producer on the Move for the initiative's first digital edition. Traditionally taking place at the Cannes Film Festival, the programme ran independently of the Festival following its postponement due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The initiative is aimed at connecting young, enterprising European producers with potential co-production partners, strengthening their industry networks and, at the same time, providing a solid and visible platform for this next generation of European filmmakers.

The producers go through a rigorous selection process, which places the top contenders in a tightly focused working environment. They take part in project pitching, 1:1 meetings and case studies, social events, and an extensive promotion campaign, which includes online presentations and an introduction to the international trades.

Criteria for participation:

The programme is open to 20 producers from 20 different European countries.

The nomination of each national participant is made by the respective national EFP member organisation.

The final selection of the 20 participants is based on a point system, which considers the following criteria:

  • The producer's experience in an international co-production (at least one international co-production) is a pre-requisite. The selection process favours producers who have been majority producers.
    (If candidates were the majority producers in more than three international co-productions, they, unfortunately, are too experienced for Producers on the Move)
  • The producer's feature-length film(s) have had a theatrical release and /or a VoD release outside of the production countries involved
  • The producer has had a feature-length film screened in the international section at a major festival
  • The producer's feature-length film was awarded Best Film in the producer's home country i.e. recipient of a national film award
  • The producer has a strong project suitable for an international co-production

If you are interested in participating in Producers on the Move 2021, please contact your national EFP member organsiation in February.
