The European Producers Club and Abu Dhabi Film Commission have renewed and furthered their partnership that started in 2009.

They will work together to send a delegation of producers selected by EPC to The Circle Conference in Abu Dhabi in October (EPC will also help with panels); and then a UAE professional delegation will attend the 2011 Berlinale for a series of conferences and meetings arranged by EPC.

The partnership deal was agreed by Alexandra Lebret, EPC’s Managing Director and ADFC’s Director David Shepheard during Cannes. This initiative is supported by the Media International Programme and the Procirep.

EPC has also worked with delegations from India and China at previous festivals.
