The UCM.ONE team will again be present at the European Film Market (EFM) Online with 3 staff members and at the Berlinale with 2 representatives from 10 – 17 February. Nearly 3,500 producers, buyers, distributors and sales agents from 110 countries will take part in this year’s online-only film fair due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The digital offerings of the EFM consist of exhibitor presentations at virtual booths, digital market screenings, the “Berlinale Series Market“, networking formats and the conference programme “EFM Industry Sessions“, which this year is entitled “Shaping Change“.
The EFM is the first film fair of the year and thus a trendsetter for new business models and an indicator of the direction of the beginning film year. For years, the European Film Market has been one of the three most important meetings of the film industry, along with the Marché du Film in Cannes and the American Film Market (AFM) in November.
UCM.ONE is not only active as a film distributor in Germany, but also as a world distributor. We hold the international theatrical rights to the majority of the films we release in Germany, as well as the international TV and home entertainment rights to many of the films in our catalogue.
Our aim is to offer outstanding feature films on the international market and make them accessible to a worldwide audience, mostly specialising in arthouse and documentary films as well as films by emerging talents and film classics.
Currently, we offer the following films worldwide, among others:
