LONDON — Hamburg-based European Film Promotion has announced its new board of directors following a general assembly meeting held at Cannes on Tuesday. Staying on as president is Claudia Landsberger, who has marshaled the pan-European promotional org since its creation a decade ago. Original EFP veepee Christian Dorsch also remains in his post.

New to the EFP board is Simon Perry, CEO of the Irish Film Board. Perry replaces the Norwegian Film Institute’s Stine Oppegaard, who decided not to pursue another two-year term on the board.
