Of vital importance to the European film industry, public funding represents a key intersection point between public policy and market dynamics. From influential national film agencies to small-scale local initiatives, the report "Public Funding for Film and Audiovisual Works in Europe" from the European Audiovisual Observatory provides a unique overview of the geographical spread, scale, and scope of direct public funding to the sector.
This report answers the following key questions: How many funds? How are they financed? What is the total volume of funding? Which activities are supported? National versus regional funding – how do they differ?
The publication "Public Funding for Film and Audiovisual Works in Europe" will be available in English in mid-August and in French and German in September on the European Audiovisual Observatory website.
