Creative Europe at Toronto International Film Festival
The stand is co-funded by Creative Europe’s MEDIA sub-programme and aims to promote the diversity of European cinema and to enhance its visibility at key industry festivals outside of Europe. With 160 European films and co-productions set to screen at TIFF, the EFP Umbrella acts as a hub for members who are not represented by their own stand, serving as a central meeting point for business and networking.
