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

France takes over European Audiovisual Observatory Presidency for 2018

The European Audiovisual Observatory kicks off a new year under French Presidency. The Strasbourg-based Observatory, part of the Council of Europe, has been providing facts and figures on the film, television and video industries in Europe since 1992. It functions under a yearly rotating Presidency, with France taking over from Poland which held the Observatory Presidency throughout 2017.

France is represented within the Observatory’s governing body, the Executive Council, by Elizabeth Le Hot, Head of division, in charge with the development of the Economy of Culture within the GD Media and Cultural Industries at the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. A public media conference on video sharing platforms will be hosted by the French Presidency of the Observatory on 5 June 2018 in Paris.

Susanne Nikoltchev, the Observatory’s Executive Director, thanked the outgoing Polish Presidency for “superb and unprecedented support” during 2017, the year of the Observatory’s 25th anniversary. She looked forward to working with France as one of the “big five major audiovisual markets in Europe and a major and dynamic player in terms of cultural industries.”
