The number of 3D screens around the world is rapidly increasing and thereby creating a serious lack of con tent.

“There are simply not enough movies.“
Peter Dobson, CEO Mann Theatres

EUROPEANMOTIONPICTURES "The Forbidden Girl" project is in postproduction and fits the need of a growing 3-D market. Since screens are available but content is not - even a moderate budget production has a very high chance of going theatrical in the U.S and the rest of the world now.

Consequently EMP has teamed up with one of the strongest players in the Hollywood independent market- SHORELINE ENTERTAINMENT- to make „THE FORBIDDEN GIRL“ a success. Morris Ruskin, chief of the Los Angeles-based financing, sales and production outfit has brought hundreds of films to the marketplace.

This year Shoreline represented four films in Sundance including Elephant Eye Films’ The Maid, which won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize and is currently in theatres, and The Queen and I, soon to be released theatrically by Seventh Art Releasing. By consistently working with prominent writers and directors and by developing and acquiring projects that are attractive to the major studios, mini-majors, and foreign markets alike, Morris’ expertise will create the best launch pad for „THE FORBIDDEN GIRL“ in the international film scene.

„THE FORBIDDEN GIRL“ will be helmed by one of the up and coming talents of Germany’s New Wave of directors from Berlin. Educated in Prague and Budapest film schools, Till Hastreiter won several awards with his debut film, Status YO. With a background in both art-house independent and high budget commercials, Till Hastreiter is a unique professional who delivers high production values on very tight budgets.

Shot on location in Berlin with a highly professional and motivated crew and production company "THE FORBIDDEN GIRL" is just the right project to be part of.

„By the way, the 2012 theatrical release in Germany is already fixed.“
