Key Trends 2019/2020 

Understanding the European film, television and VOD industries

Where were we before the COVID crisis?

To understand how COVID-19 has hit the film, TV and VOD sectors, we need to know how they were performing before it started. Key Trends 2019/2020 gives you a complete overview of the European audiovisual markets before the current crisis hit us.

  •  Which players are dominating today’s European audiovisual landscape?
  •  What are the latest market trends for cinema, television and on-demand services?
  •  How does Europe finance the production of new content and how well does it circulate?

These are some of the question explored in our new edition of Key Key Trends 2019/2020

The brand-new Key Trends 2019/2020 is free to download here. It gives you a one-volume overview of the latest developments in the European film, television and VOD industries, including market trends, financing models and circulation figures for European works. Key Trends is an executive summary of data contained in the European Audiovisual Observatory’s Yearbook – Television, VOD, cinema and video in 40 European states.

Artificial Intelligence in the audiovisual industry

In the audiovisual industry, as in other sectors, the increasing use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is likely to announce a paradigm shift, as it can transform the entire value chain.
The Observatory decided to take a closer look at these effects and devoted the 2019 edition of its annual workshop in December to discussing the opportunities and challenges raised by AI in the audiovisual sector, particularly in the journalistic field and in the film sector.
