Statement of Susan Wendt, Trust Nordisk Head of Sales, New President of Europa International:

After almost 3 years as part of the board of Europa International I am proud and glad to take on the position as President.
Europa International was founded in 2011, and it is really impressive what has been achieved within these few years regarding MEDIA, the cooperation and dialogue with Europa Distribution and Europa Cinemas and not to speak of our annual conference. This is due to a very targeted work and enthusiasm of the board lead by Michael Weber, backed by our Managing Director Daphné Kapfer.
I am looking forward to continuing that great work together with the new board and our members to strengthen our position in the International Film Business as well as exploiting new ideas and co-operations.”

During its general assembly, Europa International members had the opportunity to discuss with Xavier Troussard (Head of MEDIA program) the role of the sales agents within Creative Europe and the new MEDIA programme; and with Susanne Davis (European Film Promotion) the future of the film sales support (FSS).
