“We are delighted to launch TAP 2015 with the extended focus on TV drama projects in addition to narrative feature films. Once more, TAP shows that it is innovative and deeply rooted in the industry, serving its demands and incorporating current developments. I want to thank our Co-Presenting Partner CMPA for their continued commitment and fruitful collaboration”, says Nadja Radojevic, EPI’s Director of Training and interim CEO.
