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 (June);
  • 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.

Key Trends 2020/2021 is the Observatory’s yearly digest of what’s hot in European media: TV, film and VOD. This new edition outlines the big picture of the European audiovisual sector with its very readable round-up of the key data from Observatory research. The authors drill down into recent trends and hot issues, including ongoing insights into the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the various audiovisual industries in Europe.

 

Among the huge range of topics covered, Key Trends provides data to understand:

  • The exploitation of films during the pandemic in a period of massive cinema closure

The following graphic shows that, in October 2020, 89% of films promoted on pay-per-view VOD had actually already had a cinema release. So the ‘straight to video’ effect had not hit the TVOD market at that point.

Figures also reveal that VOD has had a very positive effect on the circulation of European films with a smaller cinema release over the past 5 years (under 50,000 admissions).

  • The production of TV series clearly on the up even before COVID confinement increased demand

Our report notes that the production of high-end TV series rose by 29% between 2014 and 2019.

  • The dynamics of the European markets just before COVID set in

The graphic below shows that the audiovisual sector in Europe was in trouble before the pandemic hit us. This sector grew by only 0.2% in real terms between 2015 and 2019. An already flourishing on-demand sector was not enough to outweigh the already notable losses in sectors such as advertising and available public funding. COVID would only serve to exacerbate these underlying trends in 2020.

And yet healthy growth was noted in the smaller markets over this period. Double figure growth was achieved by markets such as Portugal, Bulgaria, Georgia and the Slovak Republic.

  • The role of US players in Europe

Our 2019 figures show that the global audiovisual markets were dominated to a massive 73% by the US in terms of revenue. Europe represented 10%
