Count On Film, Euro!

Friday, December 16th, 2011 by

The Euro has faced a seemingly infinite amount of challenges this year and would seem to be in store for more as it struggles to remain relevant while it makes a comeback. Fortunately for the euro, though, no matter how hard the economy tries film will never go by the wayside, as best exhibited by the selling out of the European Film Market despite the changes in budgets made worldwide.

What’s particularly exciting about this EFM is that “in addition to an expected increase in the number of 3D screenings at next year’s EFM, the market will, for the first time, host a meeting place for U.S. independent filmmakers at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, organized by the Independent Filmmaker Project and the Sundance Institute. (Hollywoodreporter.com)”

Independent film has its niches here and there but an established presence at this film market which by some miracle still managed to be a smashing success says something about the positive direction independent film continues to move in. As noted above this was made possible, first by the organizers of EFM and then by the IFP and Sundance Institute.

The European Film Market takes place February 9, 2012 – February 17, 2012 and will assuredly ignite Berlin with the same majesty of film that it is known to deliver. To learn more about the European Film Market you can visit their web page here, which describes their history, cause and of course the participating films.
