Market Badge Inclusion Initiative


Supported by Creative Europe Media, HessenFilm, the European Film Market (EFM) and the Berlinale this programme aims at creating outreach and greater pathways into the market & film industry at large for underrepresented and marginalized film professionals from Europe and across the globe. Through the programme, a total of 500 market badges, 250 physical EFM Market Badges and 250 online EFM Market Badges, are awarded to organisations, collectives and institutions who represent and advocate for marginalized and global south film professionals with the overarching aim of contributing to a more inclusive film business and a more equitable playing field for all. Launched at the EFM’s 2021 edition as part of the EFM’s Diversity & Inclusion Initiative, this initiative marks the first time that such a programme of film market access has been operated in Europe.
