The EFM offers the possibility of streaming one trailer on the EFM online platforms for each film screening at the Market. The authorised entrant can upload one trailer per film via "My Account" on the EFM website.

• Audio, video and subtitles should be contained in a single file
• The running time may not exceed 5 minutes and the file size should not exceed 1 GB
• If possible, please submit HD material as mp4 (H.264, AAC)
• Please encode your video data with a constant bitrate and either 24, 25 or 30 progressive fps
• The file name should not include any special characters, for example, do not use any file names like “myfilm!@&%$§*().mov”

To ensure a high technical quality, the following settings for file compression are suggested:

Size / Aspect Ratio Video Codec / Bitrate Audio Codec / Bitrate
1920 x 1080 px / 16:9 HD H.264 high profile
10.000 Kbit/s
AAC / 320 Kbit/s
sampling rate 48 kHz

If your film is available in a different file format or on DVD, a conversion to H.264 is recommended. File conversion is offered by the software "HandBrake" for example, which is free and available for all popular computer operating systems.
