Diary of conferences and workshops

The European Audiovisual Observatory presents its work during numerous international conferences and workshops. Our Experts and Analysts are frequently invited to take part in events concerning the audiovisual industry. Every year the Observatory organises at least three of its own events, namely:

  • the biggest public event on cinema during the Cannes Film Market (May);
  • a conference in the country holding the Presidency of the Observatory (summer)
  • an event in Brussels targeting industry representatives and European decision makers, members of the press and the academic sphere (autumn)

We announce Observatory events, also events where we are present on this page of our website as well as on our various web 2.0 platforms.

  • European non-national films make up 31% of all films shown in European cinemas
  • There are more non-national European films shown in cinemas, on TV and TVOD than national films
  • European co-productions travel extremely well through Europe’s cinemas

European films are crossing borders in cinemas, on television and on VOD in Europe. This is the conclusion of the latest report by the European Audiovisual Observatory, part of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. The report, authored by Observatory Analyst Christian Grece, is entitled The circulation of EU non-national films - A sample study: Cinema, television and transactional video on-demand. The report was financed by the DG Connect of the European Commission.

1. More non-national European films than national films are shown in cinemas, TV and TVOD.

On average, there are more EU non-national films than national films on offer in cinemas, TV or TVOD.

  • In cinemas, only Italy, France, the United-Kingdom and Germany show more national films than EU non-national films.
  • On TV, Finland, the United Kingdom, France, the Czech Republic and Sweden broadcast more national films than EU non-national films.
  • On TVOD, the only United Kingdom and France propose more national films than EU non-national films.

The report concludes that the flow of films between countries is linked to volume of national production, language and cultural proximity.

  • For TVOD, the main export market for Austrian films is Germany, Belgium is the main export market for French films and Ireland was the main export market for British films.
  • Sweden and Denmark are the main markets for Finnish film exports.
  • The Slovak Republic is the main export market for Czech films and the Czech Republic is the primary export for Slovak films.

2. Co-productions travel better

  • Co-productions represented between 41% and 55% of EU non-national films but only 22% of EU film production, showing a proportional over-representation of co-productions in the circulation of EU films.
  • Co-productions are the main way for smaller volume-producing countries to export their films to other European markets.
