Apply now: EFM Market Badge Inclusion Initiative

press release

Dear EAVE Producers,

As part of the European Film Market’s Diversity & Inclusion initiative towards a more inclusive market and film industry, the EFM we will be granting a total of 315 physical EFM Market Badges and Festival Accreditations, along with 70 online EFM Market Badges, to organisations, collectives, and institutions that champion and represent marginalised and Global South film professionals.

*** EAVE has been selected as one of those organisations and we are happy to launch a special call for applications for EAVE graduates who identify as part of marginalised and/or Global South communities in order to receive one free EFM Market Badge & Festival Accreditation.

* NB: Badges are intended for in-person attendance, and they are non-transferable and not convertible!

If you wish to apply, please send your CV, company profile and short motivation statement to by November 27th.

The EFM Market Badge and Berlinale Film Festival Accreditation mainly provides access to festival screenings and the European Film Market venues in Berlin. Further details of the benefits provided by EFM physical Market Badges and festival accreditation can be found on EFM’s accreditation page

The EFM Market Badge Inclusion Initiative  is supported by Creative Europe Media, HessenFilm, the European Film Market (EFM) and the Berlinale, and aims at creating outreach and greater pathways into a more inclusive market and film industry at large for marginalised film professionals from across the globe.

The Market Badge + Festival Accreditation is recommended to filmmakers, producers, sales agents, buyers, for employees of production and distribution companies, persons working as a curator / manager for a film or cultural institution, a museum, cinema or film festival, commissioning editors, cinema programmers/ curators, teachers and/or researchers on a course whose central focus is on film, lawyers and employees in legal departments working in the film industry. Those profiles would highly benefit from attending the European Film Market.

*After selection, EFM will provide specific accreditation instructions to the selected participant who will need to formally apply until 20 December. After that date, EFM can no longer guarantee the participation in the programme.
