Dennis Ruh, EFM director, stated: “We’ve again created a ‘market within the market’ where everything revolves around high-quality series content. Series professionals, industry experts and buyers will find numerous opportunities to learn about current trends and trendsetting developments, to discover commercially promising series recommendations, and to see the first images from 2021’s most important series from Germany and other countries. All of it concentrated and located in one place - the EFM website.”

As for the conference programme, the focus will be on impact storytelling and narrative trends. In his opening keynote speech, British series creator Russell T Davies (Doctor Who) will discuss his intentions to address complex subjects and make them accessible to a large audience, and will present his new series It’s a Sin. Maurício Mota (Wise Entertainment) wil deliver a masterclass on “Social Impact Storytelling” and the power of stories to change hardened perceptions, while analyst Guy Bisson (Ampere Analytics) will present global narrative trends and current facts.

Regarding the series showcases, new productions from all over the world will be included, while the “Upcoming Series from Germany” selection will offer insight into the newest German series.

Moreover, a new label created this year — “Berlinale Series Market Selects” — will highlight the series of high commercial potential that are being screened at the market.
