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

The European Audiovisual Observatory and Portugal, which holds the Observatory Presidency for 2023, have announced a public European cinema conference:

New trends and risks in the European cinema sector? - A small/medium markets perspective

This will be held on Tuesday 6 June, at 14:30 – 17:30 (Lisbon time) at the Cinemateca Portugesa, R. Barata Salgueiro 39, 1269-059 Lisbon. All are welcome and entry is free.

Free registration here.

The Observatory's Portuguese Presidency for 2023 is represented by Marta Sousa, Legal and International Affairs Officer within the Portuguese national ​​cinema institute, Instituto do Cinema e do audiovisual.

New trends and risks in the European cinema sector? - A small/medium markets perspective will bring together a panel of Portuguese industry representatives from the major cinema sectors such as exhibition, film funding, distribution and production.

The team from the Strasbourg-based Observatory, which is part of the Council of Europe, will provide an overview of the current trends in the European cinema industry and share fresh insights from the Cannes film market in May where the Observatory has a strong and regular presence.

We’ll then zoom in on the Portuguese national cinema industry and focus on the specificities of the Portuguese film market, the specific challenges for Portuguese film professionals, the particular national public support initiatives envisaged for the future and the effect of European cultural policies on Portuguese national cinema.

Speaking for the Observatory’s Portuguese Presidency, Marta Sousa stated that she was looking forward to “placing the Portuguese cinema industry and its current and future challenges in the wider European context thanks to this conference.”

Susanne Nikoltchev, Executive Director of the Observatory, stated her satisfaction at working with the Portuguese Presidency in 2023. She looked forward to “sharing the Observatory’s European insights with a Portuguese cinema public and also benefiting from their experience as stakeholders in the Portuguese national cinema industry.”
