  • On average a film is broadcast 2.6 times by the same channel the same year.
  • Films produced less than 10 years ago account for 53% of all broadcasts.
  • The 28% European film share breaks down into 14% national films and 14% European non-national films.

The European Audiovisual Observatory’s Key Trends 2017/18 publication is now on line free for the first time. This 72-page report gives a digestible overview of the film, VOD and television sectors in Europe, covering 41 countries. The Observatory is proud to make this publication free of charge just ahead of the Cannes Film Festival. The report’s coordinator, Gilles Fontaine (Head of the Observatory’s Department for Market Information) said that he hoped this market data “would help European film professionals prepare their business strategy for Cannes 2018 – with all the key figures on the latest trends to hand.”

Key Trends is a free executive summary of all the data contained in the European Audiovisual Observatory’s Yearbook. Access this on-line premium service here.
