EFM European Film Market Berlin

| Fair for the distribution of international film rights

The European Film Market (EFM) is an international fair for the trade of film rights and ranks among the largest film markets worldwide. This event takes place every year in February in Berlin and was established as an integral part of the Berlin International Film Festival, also known as the Berlinale. The EFM serves as a trendsetter for new business models and sets the direction for the upcoming film year..

As the first major film market of the year, the EFM offers a platform for the presentation and distribution of new films and series, as well as for the development and financing of projects. The fair brings together a variety of players from the film industry, including producers, sellers, buyers, and financiers.

The event offers a wide range of activities and services that go beyond traditional film market activities. These include numerous events, panel discussions, screenings, and 1on1 meetings, all taking place in a relaxed atmosphere. The fair emphasizes the importance of professional encounters and promotes exchange and collaboration.

A distinctive feature of the EFM is its diversity of initiatives and focal points. In addition to its main focus on feature films and series, the fair also dedicates itself to special segments such as the African film market and documentaries. In doing so, it provides a comprehensive overview of the current trends and developments in various areas of the film industry.

The European Film Market takes place at three main locations in Berlin, all situated near Potsdamer Platz. The heart of the fair is the Martin-Gropius-Bau, renowned for its historical significance and architectural beauty. This venue is complemented by the nearby Marriott Hotel and Berliner Freiheit, which provide additional space for events and meetings.

Overall, the EFM is not just a marketplace for international film distribution, but also a meeting point for the film industry that fosters innovation and offers insights into the film year. With its combination of business and culture, the EFM significantly contributes to the dynamics and success of the Berlinale.

The EFM European Film Market take place annually, and therefore presumably in February 2025 in Berlin.
