EFM Asia is one of the many ways the EFM is further strengthening its links to China and other Asian markets, establishing an attractive and effective platform for the Asian industry to connect to the European and international industry at the market.
Partnering with the Berlin based networking platform Bridging the Dragon for European and Chinese producers, the European Film Market hosts the Sino-European Production Seminar, that serves as a place to learn and connect: the informal sessions include a considerable amount of time for Q&A’s.
Instead of offering tailor-made advise on individual projects, attendees can learn from case studies, join group discussions, expand their network and arrange additional meetings for their own projects.
