The Macedonian director and producer Svetozar Ristovski joins 19 producers from across Europe who were selected to take part in EFP’s networking platform PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE and are currently meeting at the Cannes Film Festival. With its annual networking event, European Film Promotion (EFP) facilitates the exchange of similarly vibrant colleagues from other European countries who are all looking for international co-production-partners. Each year the programme results in several new European co-productions and gives the producers a higher profile in Cannes.
The four-day programme running from May 15 – 18 includes working sessions, one-to-one speed-dating meetings, a case study in cooperation with Eurimages, and various opportunities to follow up discussions on future projects. Now in its 16th year, the four-day event again received financial support from the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the participating EFP member organisations.
Svetozar Ristovski is a co-producer of Ognjen Svilic’s latest film “These are the rules”, which has had its premiere at last year’s Venice Film Festival. Svetozar is currently engaged as a producer, director and co-writer on his feature film project Lazar, a Macedonian/Bulgarian/Croatian/French co-production, which is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere this summer.
