The Wife

European Film Promotion (EFP) is backing 44 projects from 31 sales companies at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

The projects, from 22 European countries, will receive €183,600 in funding to put towards the promotional campaigns of films.

These include TIFF premieres such as Glenn Close drama The Wife, which is a gala presentation, and Ellen Page-starring thriller The Cured, which is a special presentation.

Companies receiving the support include Beta Cinema, Memento, Stray Dogs, and the UK’s WestEnd Films, Embankment Film Sales and Film Constellation.

Ten of the companies involved are receiving film sales slate funding from EFP, which covers strategies across TIFF, the Asian Film Market in Busan, and AFM in LA in November.
