share info
Part of the already running 65th Berlin International Film Festival, and the first film market of the year, the European Film Market (EFM) opened yesterday at the exhibition spaces Martin-Gropius-Bau and Marriott Hotel. Fully booked, as usual, EFM works as a compass for the newest industry developments. Launching some new initiatives, EFM is set to provide creators and producers with additional networking and business opportunities. 

Translated in numbers, Berlinale 2015΄s European Film Market is bringing 487 exhibitors, 8,396 professionals from 107 countries, including 1,499 international buyers and 1,109 screenings of 784 films, making it one of the most significant platforms for trade in international audiovisual content: Film buyers and sellers, producers, distributors and financiers as well as representatives of the global TV, Home Entertainment and New Media market get up-to-date on the latest productions and developments in the global film scene, negotiate film rights and make or foster business network.

Balkan Film Centers and companies from the audiovisual sector are, of course, part of this massive industry gathering. For some of them is a huge step forward just to have a stand at the Martin-Gropius-Bau 19th century building and the Marriott Hotel. Lets have a look at some interesting numbers which, more or less, define each Balkan country΄s dynamic in the industry:
