EFM Film Entry
To submit a film, you must be registered as an EFM participant with a Market Badge or a Market Badge + Festival Accreditation and logged into "My Account".
How to Submit a Film
First, you need to be registered. (Create an Account, apply via Online Registration Form.) Before starting the film entry process, please read our Regulations, and check the Screening Prices and the Technical Requirements below. Alternatively, if you will not attend the Market and only wish to submit films to the EFM without being registered, you can request a film entry account.
- Fill in the online film entry form (including film details such as cast & crew, production companies, synopsis and technical data like screening format, sound, running time etc.). The screening format and running time are the most crucial technical data for us, so please be sure to let us know if either of these changes at any time.
- You will receive a confirmation from us once we've received your film entry form. Our catalogue staff will also contact you for further details including a film still for the catalogue.
- We will start the programming in January. A Screening Confirmation will be sent to you by mid-January.
- After you have submitted a film to the EFM, you are allowed to upload one trailer per film, which will be displayed in the online screening schedule (if your film is officially screened at the Market).
Film Entry Account
Alternatively, if you will not attend the Market and only wish to submit films to the EFM without being registered, you can request a film entry account. Film entry accounts provide limited access to the "My Account" area, allowing you to access the online Film Entry and Screening Reports only. To request a film entry account, please log in to "My Account" or create a new account.
