European Producers Club

Overview of the EPC

The European Producers Club (EPC) is an association of 100 influential independent film producers from all over Europe.
Founded in 1993 within the framework of the GATS negotiations, we act as a network, a think tank and as a lobby. Our mission is to keep our members up to date with the latest developments in the film industry in Europe and across the world; we encourage collaboration, joint financing and coproduction across countries; we also lobby on a political level to protect and further the interests of the European industry and European producers.

To this end, we have become expert in the organization of events that bring together film professionals from around the world, whether for conferences, networking events within or outside Europe, and workshops.

In addition to the individual companies which are members of the EPC, the EPC coordinates an alliance of national Producer Associations across Europe through the EPAA (European Producer Associations Alliance) and thus boasts a network of over 3000 industry professionals.

The EPC opened a representation office in China in 2013.

Managing Director

Alexandra LEBRET

A graduate in Economics (pre-phd), marketing at ESSEC, France, and at Università di Bocconi, Italy, Alexandra Lebret has dedicated her career to the cinema industry.

After working for 7 years on the international development of UGC multiplexes in France, Spain, and Italy, Alexandra cofounded the Parisian cultural weekly Zurban, and cofounded, one of the first VOD sites in France (in 2000). In 2002, she was named Managing Director of the European Producers Club and assumed responsibility for all of the EPC's activities. She has brought renewed momentum to the association by developing international coproduction assistance and exploring new foreign markets. This has resulted in the creation of numerous coproduction forums, cooperation forums (outside Europe), round tables and conferences open to the public.

Since June 2014, she leads both the EPC and her activity as a producer in the company Mare Nostrum Productions.
