European Film Promotion (EFP) was founded 15 years ago. In 1997 ten European promotion and export organisations joined forces during the Berlin International Film Festival, to demonstrate the wealth of films from various individual countries and to bring them onto the screen for audiences around the globe.

A network was built up and it has grown continuously. More and more countries from the new united Europe petitioned to join. Today, EFP has expanded to include 32 individual organisations representing 33 European countries - and EFP is still the only umbrella organisation of its kind promoting European cinema and its talent worldwide, supported right from the start by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the EFP member organisations.
