The exclusive group of 20 up-and-coming producers selected for the 19th edition of European Film Promotion’s (EFP) networking platform PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE (May 10 – 14, 2018) has come together at the Cannes Film Festival to exchange experiences and find co-production partners for their next trans-national projects.
The 71st Cannes International Film Festival – one of the most important film industry events around the globe – opens today and will take place on May 8–19. Lithuania will traditionally present its potential at the festival’s film market Marché du Film. About 50 representatives of the Lithuanian film industry will take part at the market and across the programme set up for industry professionals. Producer Lukas Trimonis was selected for the networking platform Producers on the Move, the special programme Vilnius Goes to Cannes will feature the film Isaac by the filmmaker Jurgis Matulevičius while the country’s pavilion will promote Lithuanian films and raise awareness about the Lithuanian film tax incentive which has already brought over €8.5m of investments into film production in Lithuania during the past few years.
