Call For: Applications for EFP Producers on the Move 2019

Call for Applications: EFP Producers on the Move 2019

Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland is now seeking applications from Irish producers who wish to be considered as the Irish representative for the 2019 EFP Producers on the Move programme held each year at the Cannes Film Festival.

Each year, 20 up and coming producers from 20 different countries from throughout Europe are selected to participate in Producers on the Move at the Cannes Film Festival. The four-day programme aims at connecting enterprising young producers with international potential co-production partners and strengthening their industry networks. The programme is underpinned by a digital promotion campaign and a press campaign in the international trades, creating visibility and opportunity for the producers.

The programme is open to 20 producers from 20 different European countries. The interested producers/production companies must have completed at least one international co-production.  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 / SVoD / DVD / TV release outside of the production countries involved;
