The Iranian organizations to present their films at the European Film Market, one of the top three meeting places of the international film and media industries, include the Experimental and Documentary Film Center, Fajr International Film Festival, Farabi Cinema Foundation, Art and Experience Cinema, Eli Image, Honar Aval and iFilm Pro.
According to the organizers of the festival, the European Film Market, which shares close links with the Berlinale as a public film festival, will host nearly 800 films already registered for market screenings, of which two-thirds are market premieres.
Over 470 companies from almost 60 countries have registered, including almost 200 companies that are participating in the EFM for the first time.
“These positive numbers confirm that this year’s virtual edition of the EFM is also in high demand, and they reinforce the decision to go forward with the unusual format in an unusual year. In the first quarter of the year, the EFM is the focal point of the international film business,” wrote EFM Director Dennis Ruh.
Due to the pandemic, the European Film Market will be held online on March 1-5, 2021.
