The Changing Face of Europe at Hot Docs

Of Fish and Foe

24th April 2018

Ten outstanding European documentaries have been selected for The Changing Face of Europe, a new collaboration between European Film Promotion and Hot Docs.

We are excited about this brand new collaboration between EFP (of which British Council is the UK member organisation) and Hot Docs, North America’s most important documentary festival, which is designed to reflect on the social, economic and political changes affecting Europe today. We are delighted that our nominated film was selected, and Heike Bachelier and Andy Heathcote’s new documentary Of Fish and Foe will receive its world premiere there.

Hot Docs opens on 26 April and EFP is bringing the films' 17 directors and producers to participate in some of the festival’s important industry programmes, such as the Distribution Rendezvous, Producer-to-Producer Meetings and the Doc Shop. In addition to these events, EFP will offer the filmmakers tailored individual meetings with a group of distributors, festival programmers, producers, sales representatives and funders from North America. These meetings will offer the directors and producers a chance to expand their network and connect with people they might not otherwise have met, and hopefully also stimulate the distribution of their films in North America.
