European Film Promotion (EFP) is backing nine European features that are travelling to this month’s Sundance Film Festival (January 18-28).
Through its Film Sales Support programme, the organisation is giving a €35,000 boost to the marketing of the selected titles.
Four of the titles are screening in Sundance’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition: Isold Uggadottir’s And Breathe Normally (The Match Factory), Gustav Möller’s The Guilty (TrustNordisk), Isabella Eklöf’s Holiday (Heretic Outreach), and Babis Makridis’ Pity (New European Film Sales).
A further four are in the World Cinema Documentary Competition: Christian Frei’s Genesis 2.0 (Rise and Shine World Sales), Talal Derki’s Of Fathers And Sons (Autlook Filmsales), Samuel Collardey’s A Polar Year (Kinology), and Lorna Tucker’s Westwood (Dogwoof).
Finally, in Sundance’s Spotlight section, Rungano Nyoni’s Bafta-nominated I Am Not A Witch (Kinology) will also receive backing.
