Visitors to the European Film Market in Berlin can find the Czech Film Commission at the Martin-Gropius-Bau at the Central European Cinema stand. The Czech Film Commission is also cooperating with the European Film Commissions Network (EUFCN), which is at the Berlinale for the first time with its own stand, promoting the European film industry and film culture. The Czech Film Commission is a founding member of EUFCN, which was established in 2007. The Czech Embassy in Berlin will host EUFCN's annual general assembly February 11, when the organization will discuss strengthening cooperation among its 65 member commissions in 21 countries. This spring, film professionals can find EUFCN at the international conference on film and tourism held in Marseille in March, the Locations Trade Show in Santa Monica in April, and at the Marché du Film in Cannes in May. Those interested in learning more about EUFCN are invited to stop by Stand 118 (first floor) at the EFM's newly added location at the Marriott, Inge-Beisheim-Platz 1.
