CFPE Meeting in Istanbul

Our CFPE General Assembly in Istanbul was attended by nearly all CFPE members.

We discussed issues for our national association members, feedback on the CFPE events in Cannes- the Young Directors Award and World Producers Summit and planned forthcoming events.

Both Cannes events were very successful, with the YDA drawing a capacity audience of 1,000 people to see excellent quality films from new directors. The WPS, which we host with the CFPE and APA, drew 110 production company owners from around the world to share intelligence on key production issues and new developments.

We looked at production issues across Europe and compared different markets and the CFPE adopted the standard NDA and pre PIBS (pre contract) documents created by the APA as standard European documents.

The meeting took place within the Crystal Apple, the leading Turkish advertising festival, and gave CFPE delegates the opportunity to participate in that festival too.

Many thanks for our hosts, the Turkish producers association, for their excellent organisation and generous hospitality.
