MISSION & OBJECTIVE
"The European Independent Film Festival has proved to be a true
breakthrough for Indie Filmmakers in Europe. European independent
filmmakers have the chance to screen their films to an audience hungry
for high-quality independent films, they now have a forum to exchange
ideas with other filmmakers and exposes them to other independent
filmmakers from around the World.” Says Scott Hillier, Executive
Director of The European Independent Film Festival..

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Held in the prestigious Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris,
France on March 16th, 17th and 18th 2007, the ECU Film Festival 2007
showcases the very best independent filmmaking talent and offers
filmmakers the opportunity to have their films screened in a highly
esteemed competition. During the festival filmmakers have the
opportunity to attend editing workshops and screenwriting labs, to
discuss their projects with fellow independent filmmakers and network
with producers, talent spotters and agents.
Founded in 2006, The European Independent Film Festival broke onto the
film festival circuit and straight away established itself as the place
for both European and non-European independent filmmakers to show their
films to large public and professional audiences.

The three day event will be hosted by the prestigious Bibliothèque
Nationale de France in Paris on March 14th, 15th and 16th 2008 and is
the only truly Pan-European festival for Independent films.

The ÉCU Film Festival 2009 will be an excellent place for networking
with other independent filmmakers as well as distributors, producers,
agents and talent spotters. To make this a rewarding film festival
experience, all festival attendees will be able to attend editing
workshops and screenwriting labs, join in on discussion panels and get
hands on experience with the latest filmmaking technology. With
interest from large sections of European and International press this
is a great opportunity to get the word out about your films.
