Euro Connection – Festival du Film Court de Clermont-Ferrand

European Short Film Co-Production Forum

Applications are open and you have until October 20th to submit your projects!

Euro Connection, the European co-production pitch forum organized by the most important short film festival in the world, Clermont-Ferrand, is back.
The Italian Short Film Center is the Italian referent for the initiative and will conduct the selection of the projects.

Euro Connection is an extraordinary opportunity for European producers to find an international partner for the co-production of a short film.

> Production companies from all over Europe have the opportunity to register, with short projects yet to be shot that have already found a support fund (private or public).
A European board will select 14 of the projects received. The finalist projects will be presented to an audience of potential co-producers, broadcasters, public financiers during the pitch that will take place in Clermont-Ferrand on 2 and 3 February 2021 (with possible variations due to the development of the local and global health situation).
The producers of the selected projects will be guests of the festival for 4 days. The organization will also contribute € 160 to their travel expenses.

For some of the unselected producers, there will also be the opportunity to be invited to the Producers Focus to present their company and approach to the world of short films and co-productions.

Over the course of these 13 editions, Euro Connection has enabled the making of 100 films, including 51 international co-productions.
