Producers on the Move 2010
European Film Promotion (EFP) has announced the 23 “enterprising and up-and-coming” producers from Europe chosen for Producers on the Move 2010 (May 15-18), to be held at the Cannes Film Festival (May 12-23).
During the three-day event, which is financially supported by the MEDIA Programme, participants discussed the content, planning and financing of their European-oriented projects and were brought by EFP to the attention of the international film industry and press.
Many former participants are now among the lists of festival winners and in past years up to half have planned co-productions together. Moreover, some of this year’s producers have already won international acclaim with their most recent films, including Lauranne Bourrachot (France, A Prophet [+see also:

For the first time, EFP worked on Producers on the Move with Commerzbank, which is also a new financial partner for the EFP’s Shooting Stars project, and which provided attending producers in Cannes with information about complementary financing opportunities.
As in previous years, Cineuropa is a partner to the initiative and publishes interviews with the selected producers:
