Press

We serve European and international journalists with our press releases. We regularly publish facts, figures and analysis from our latest publications or conference presentations in the form of press releases targeting the journalist community.


All press releases are available in English, French and German. We also offer free copies of our publications to bona fide journalists who quote our work in their articles or write about our publications.

Our experts and analysts are often solicited to answer journalists' questions and participate in radio and television programmes. We are very glad to do this inasmuch as the work involved in producing our publications allows.

If you wish to join our unique network of journalists covering the audiovisual industries, or simply wish to receive our press releases for information, send an email to the Observatory's Press Officer (see details on the right). We look forward to satisfying your information needs.

For any press releases prior to 2017, please contact alison.hindhaugh@coe.int

  • 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.
