Submissions for the European Genre Forum 2024 are now open!

The European Genre Forum, a one-year training cycle for emerging European genre filmmakers, opens a call for submissions for 2024. 

In 2024, EGF celebrates its 10-year anniversary with 72 genre film projects under its belt. The forum has established itself as a recognized learning platform for professionals working in European genre and fantastic film industry.

In its 10th edition, EGF will run three talent Labs from July to November 2024. The objective of the European Genre Forum is to provide comprehensive cross-sector and film life cycle training for professionals working in European genre and fantastic film – a rapidly growing pan-European industry that is still distinctively different from the general film industry.

Its unique requirements for creative and financial development, production characteristics and distribution and monetizing networks have created a dedicated infrastructure of markets, festivals and training. The EGF has a fruitful collaboration with the BIF Market (part of the Brussels Fantastic Film Festival), and projects from previous editions enjoy successful festival runs both in Europe and the US.

Eight projects will be selected, and the participants are expected to attend all three Labs.


  • Submission Deadline:  Sunday, 10 April 2024, Midnight CET
  • Announcement Selection: Wednesday 1 May 2024
