Launch – Public Film Funding At A Crossroads
March 11 CET 11:00 – 13:00
‘Public Film Funding At A Crossroads’ is a study about the future relevance of public film funding in Europe – particularly selective film finance.
The background is the paradigm shift, the unprecedented growth in production and of capital. Global American owned “companies” have become key drivers of local production of films and drama series in big parts of Europe.
The thesis of the report is that public selective film financing must renew its argument and change its offer to remain relevant. The purpose is to create a platform for discussion about public film policies and film funding in the mid- and long-term future.
