|Mission||The European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation aims to promote European genre film and filmmaking, as well as to promote its members and the the Méliès d'Or - the official award for the Best European Fantastic Film handed out annually by the federation.|
The European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation (the Federation) is a tightly knit network of 23 film festivals from 16 countries, with a global attendance of over 450 000 visitors, making it a vital economic and cultural player on the fantastic film scene.
Its mission is to promote European fantastic film productions throughout Europe and the world, by enhancing their visibility and their standing both among the public and within the industry, as well as encouraging their circulation. The Federation works to fulfil this mission through its festival network in Europe, its supporting members in Asia, North- and South America, and its Méliès awards for outstanding European genre films.
The festivals are major platforms for genre film in their respective regions. They all work closely within the Federation network, but embody diversity and individual artistic identity, through their distinct programming choices, including the Méliès competition selections. They feature both press and audience screenings and offer a full range of side events that include master classes, conferences and industry pitchings, bringing together a wide spectrum of viewers, iconic and emerging talent, and other industry professionals to share experiences and knowledge.
The Méliès d'Or and Méliès d'Argent awards are given each year to the best European fantastic feature and short films. The awards recognize quality and creativity, and generate unique visibility for the film and their directors. The winners are showcased by all of the Federation's festivals, including its supporting members abroad in Canada, the United States and South Korea, thereby encouraging their circlation worldwide.
