Variety and EFM are hosting a debate on new approaches to finance and content based on needs and opportunities: Contained-budget production in France, evolving film finance options in Germany, the overhaul of Europe’s incentive systems, still building markets – think Russia and Latin America – and the good news around films like "Amour" and "The Intouchables" that are creating positive brand identities for European films.
The panel will be moderated by John Hopewell (Variety).
