From Tuesday 7th to Thursday 9th, the EUFCN was a protagonist of the special exhibition “10 Years of Filming Europe”. The exhibition inside the EU Parliament was sponsored by the Italian MEP Sergio Cofferati. It aimed at recreating the atmosphere of a movie theatre for the audience and offered them a unique show: the viewer was carried directly inside the production process of a movie, to understand the meaningful role played by film commissions during the full movie’s realization.
On Wednesday 8th, the EUFCN organized a conference to present the Network and its mission in front of the MEPs. The conference was concentrated on film commissions’ work, with a special focus on Film Tourism and the Economic Impact of the Creative Industries.
On Thursday 9th the event closed with special training sessions, reserved for EUFCN members. The main topics were Green Filming and Film Tourism.
“In its first decade, our Association has grown exponentially, reaching a dimension that was unthinkable only a few years ago.” This is the enthusiastic comment of Truls Kontny, President of EUFCN, who wants to underline that “thanks to the active participation and involvement of each member, the EUFCN has been able to increase its presence in the most important International film festivals and trade shows, to raise its visibility in front of the European institutions and to create several networking events with audiovisual professionals and the industry. The Board and I, we do believe that the 10th Anniversary Events will represent a great goal in order to show the development potential of our Network.”
