Supported by the Ministry of Culture and its Directorate General for Cinema and Audiovisual, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Cinecittà and the Italian Trade Agency, Italy’s vibrant film scene will present itself from a variety of perspectives at the Berlinale’s EFM 2024.

The "Country in Focus" initiative offers Italy’s film industry a special platform and its filmmakers the opportunity to introduce themselves in greater depth and to highlight certain aspects. The opportunity to focus on and extensively present film countries such as Italy at the market supports not only the EFM’s relationships with individual film industries internationally, but also fosters exchange between the film industries themselves.

“Italy in Focus” at the EFM is an important global showcase for Italian filmmakers, allowing Italian content to reach new audiences and create new export opportunities for its industry.

The main programme offers numerous opportunities to network with Italian producers, distributors, investors and creators and to get to know Italian productions.
