The UCM.ONE team is represented this year from March 1st to 5th at the European Film Market (EFM) Online with 3 people. Almost 3,500 producers, buyers, sales agents and distributors from 110 countries are taking part in the film fair, which is only taking place online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The EFM is the first film fair of the year and thus a trendsetter for new business models and an indicator for the direction of the beginning film year. For years, the European Film Market has been one of the three most important industry meetings for the film industry alongside the Marché du Film in Cannes and the American Film Market in November.
UCM.ONE not only distribute films in Germany, but is also active in world sales. We hold the international rights to the films that we release in theaters in Germany., as well as the international TV and home entertainment rights to many of the films in our catalogue.
Our goal is to offer outstanding feature films on the international market and make them accessible to a global audience, whereby we mostly specialize in arthouse and documentary films as well as films by emerging talents and film classics. Among other things, we are offering the following films this year:
