(Online) Market Badge Inclusion Initiative


Created in the run-up to the EFM 2021, 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 100 online market badges were 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 equal playing field for all. This initiative marks the first time that such a programme of film market access has been operated in Europe.
In 2022, the initiative will award 500 Online Market Badges to marginalized film professionals via renewed outreach to such representative bodies.
