German Boulevard on the Croisette again

German Boulevard on the Croisette again


Export-Union of German Cinema and FOCUS Germany enlarge their stand at the Cannes Film Festival (15.- 26.05.2002)


The Export-Union and the group of the six large regional film funds, FOCUS Germany, will again be represented in Cannes with a prestigious stand in the immediate vicinity of the Festival Palais. Located in the „International Village“ of the Marche International du Film (MIF), the „German Boulevard“ proved so successful in 2001 that it will be enlarged by 50% this year.


The „German Boulevard“, situated within the MIF market area and thus only accessible to accredited professionals, offers German and international visitors the chance to talk business and make contacts in a relaxed atmosphere. With its large waterfront terrace, the stand immediately established itself last year as the new meeting place for the German film industry on the Croisette. Thanks to its ideal position at the centre of the festval market, it offers the participating institutions numerous possibilities for making contacts with new and interesting target groups.


The following institutions are represented at the „German Boulevard“:


* Filmboard Berlin-Brandenburg * FilmFernsehfonds Bayern * FilmFörderung Hamburg * Filmstiftung NRW * MFG Baden-Württemberg * Mitteldeutsche

Medienförderung. * Federal Commissioner for Affairs of Culture and the Media (Beauftragter der Bundesregierung für Angelegenheiten der Kultur und der Medien) * Export-Union des Deutschen Films * German Federal Film Board (Filmförderungsanstalt)
