The Macedonian Film Fund has become the 30th member of European Film Promotion (EFP), the pan-European network of film promotion and export organisations.

The membership will help the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) to promote its films internationally, and give it access to EFP promotional events.

Darko Baseki, chief executive of Macdonian Film Fund, said: “Being a member of European Film Promotion gives us a big opportunity to promote our cinematography abroad. All promotion events organised by EFP are a great chance for providing films, actors, directors and producers with an open door for collaboration in Europe and the whole world.”

EFP is financially supported by its member organisations, the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and as well by private sponsors and national film funds. Its latest event was the 10th Producers On The Move initiative at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, which showcased 23 up-and-coming European producers.
