The identity of the European Genre Forum is inspired by a real forum where the audience is positioned around a central point.

The main goal of the European Genre Forum is to connect young and upcoming, as well as already proven, European film talents.

European Genre Forum is a pan-european project organized by Black Nights Film Festival from Tallinn (among 15 world A festivals); Imagine Film Festival from Amsterdam (biggest festival for fantastic film in the Netherlands); Fantastic Zagreb Film Festival (largest genre festival in the SEE region) and film consultancy company Screen Division from Paris.
