EFP operates the large and very busy EUROPE! UMBRELLA at the Asian Film Market in Busan for European world sales agents and EFP member organisations representing their films. The stand is in a prime location at BEXCO's exhibition hall, attracting substantial business from Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and Indonesia, and other Asian countries. EFP has been offering this European meeting point and workspace for Europe's world sales agents at the Asian Film Market since 2006. In collaboration with UniFrance, the EUROPEAN UMBRELLA was greatly expanded to 189 square metres in 2014. A steady and growing number of registered world sales agents from Europe hold their meetings at individual tables supported by EFP staff on site. Additional space is provided for displaying promotional material in order to highlight the presence of European cinema.
The Asian Film Market has established itself as one of the leading film business markets in Asia on a par with the FILMART in Hong Kong, providing an expanding exhibition area for the film industry, triggering production, acquisition, sales and investment of films. The Asian Project Market (APM) is a strong component of the market offering diverse business exchanges.
