"Even during difficult times, we must not forget to nurture our arts and culture", Christian Juhl Lemche says. "I very much look forward to collaborating with all of the EFP members on the continued promotion of European films." Since EFP's inception in 1997, Denmark has always been a strong member of EFP and supporter of its international activities.

EFP is financially supported by the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, its member organisations, and public and private sponsors.
