In a statement, Sepp said, “I would like to contribute to a stronger union between EFAD members, bringing the voices of small, young and less competitive countries closer to prominent, mature and very competitive ones. Europe’s very diverse storytelling skills are one of its great strengths and we can act together to increase the audience's desire for European audiovisual works across the world. I am also convinced of the need for more innovation, film education and diversity in the sector.”
