EFM Docs and Archive Market
Manu Guddait & Dörte Grimm
EFM Docs & Archive Market: Feb 16-20, 2024
As in 2023 you will find all documentary activities within the EFM Industry Sessions conference and networking programme as well as an exclusive meeting point for the documentary industry in the Documentation Centre for Displacement, Expulsion, Reconciliation, just a three-minute walk from Gropius Bau. The selected talk formats will focus on highly topical developments in the documentary landscape. Our tailored and pre-scheduled meeting formats Meet the Festivals and Consult the Experts offer the possibility to meet and consult with our international guests, many of them from the documentary landscape.
DAE – Documentary Association of Europe – our partner regarding all documentary activities will support us again in the framework of the EFM Industry Sessions in 2024. In addition to our collaboration on conference talks and roundtables focusing on documentary topics, DAE once again offers walk-in consultations from Friday to Monday, Feb 16-19.
You can pre-register for walk in consultations via the EFM Event Schedule, if you are registered for the EFM with an (Online) Market Badge and logged into your account.
Consultations & One-on-Ones
Our consultations facilitate discussions between participants with projects at all stages and key-figures from the following fields:
- Funding / Packaging
- Impact Producing / Marketing / Press & PR
- (Co-) Production
- Sales / Distribution
Each hour-long session connects you and 4 others with one industry expert.
Forge connections with top festival programmers and market representatives, discuss current projects and gain insights into the programming and editorial focus of the respective festival. You can book up to three of the 7-minute long one-on-one meetings.
Pre-registration for both formats starts at the end of January 2024 and will be available through the EFM Event Schedule if you are registered for the EFM with an (Online) Market Badge and logged into your account.
Archive Market: Feb 20, 2024

On Tuesday, the Archive Market will be enhanced by two archive-related panels in Café Connect, as well as an archive panel/case study featured in the conference programme. Additionally, an insightful podcast highlighting the crucial work of archives and archive producers will be available online at the beginning of February 2024.
