European Film Promotion to Take 13 Talents to Busan Festival

The European Film Promotion organization will take 13 artistic talents to accompany European films participating at the Busan International Film Festival (Oct. 1-10) in South Korea.

The festival unveiled its full line-up on Tuesday this week.

EFP is also inviting a growing number of European sales companies to take part in an enlarged umbrella booth from Oct. 3 – 6 as part of Busan’s Asian Film Market. Companies which have previously participated with their own stands at the market incuding TrustNordisk from Denmark, Westend Films from the U.K. and Wide from France, have already registered with EFP.

For some 18 years EFP has been supporting cultural exchanges between European film makers and Korean audiences, as well as helping European films find their way onto Asia’s screens. EFP’s programme, Opening Doors, is backed by the Creative Europe – Media Programme of the European Union and by participating EFP member organizations.

Films selected include “Babai”, the feature debut by Kosovo-born, Germany-based film maker Visar Morina, which won best director at the Karlovy Vary festival; Dalibor Matanic’s drama, “The High Sun,” which screened in Cannes at Un Certain Regard; fantasy horror, “The Hallow,” by British visual artist and pop promo director Corin Hardy; and the Cuba-set “Viva,” by Ireland’s Paddy Breathnach.
