European Film Promotion at TIFF

European Film Promotion’s (EFP) Film Sales Support (FSS) initiative will come to Toronto

Once again the European Film Promotion’s (EFP) Film Sales Support (FSS) initiative will come to Toronto to link sales companies from all over Europe to a
great array of buyers from across the globe. Supported by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, FSS has now been aiding the European film industry fro
the last 10 years.

“Toronto has and is an important informal market and an important festival for European films, the distributors see the films in a different mood, more
quietly, the public screenings are working well. It is a key place to launch a film or to complete previous sales on films that were in Cannes, Venice,
Locarno…” (Loïc Magneron, WIDE)

“TIFF is a major pillar of the annual festival calendar. Aside from a proliferation of North American buyers, it also attracts top tier international
distributors so a favorable reception at TIFF can significantly increase a film’s commercial prospects”. (Andrew Orr, Independent)

Due to the limited amount of resources, only 52 out of the 60 films submitted to the EFP will receive financial support to be marketed during the TIFF,
which runs from September 5 to 15. This year alone, 372 films total, over 150 from Europe, will screen at the festival many of which will see their world
or international premiers there.
