American Independents in Berlin
Sundance at EFM & IFP Selects

The EFM partners with the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) and the Sundance Institute to bring you American Independents in Berlin - presenting new US-American works to international buyers, sellers and festival programmers as well as supporting its filmmakers, companies and organizations while in Berlin.

For over ten years, “Sundance at EFM” has been the direct pipeline between the European Film Market and the Sundance Film Festival, giving EFM Buyers first crack at close to 50 new films fresh from their screenings at Sundance. Together with the screening series “IFP Selects”, these hand-picked American indies are introduced to an international audience and a world of sales and distribution possibilities.

The American Independents in Berlin umbrella, located on the second floor of the Martin-Gropius-Bau, is the “home office” for US industry and filmmakers at the EFM, offering a wide-range of services and networking events.
