Euro Connection is supported by Creative Europe’s MEDIA sub-programme and the PROCIREP.


What is Euro Connection?
Each year 13 short film projects are selected across Europe to participate in Euro Connection, with the help of a network of national correspondents in each of the associated countries. The producers of the selected projects receive an invitation that includes a travel grant, hotel accommodation, meals and a free accreditation to the Short Film Market in Clermont-Ferrand.

The selected projects are highlighted in the Book of Projects and Producers, with details for each project and a profile of their authors and producers. Its publication (mid-January) is announced to European producers, broadcasters, fund representatives and financial backers registered to Clermont-Ferrand, who are invited to secure attendance to the pitching sessions during Euro Connection.

150 industry delegates take part in Euro Connection each year. So far, 80 films were completed, including 39 European co-productions as a direct result from the first nine editions of Euro Connection.
