EUFCN Renews Board of Directors and Elects Co-Presidents

The European Film Commissions Network renewed its Board of Directors at the General Assembly held in London on December 5th, 2022.

Zuzana Bielikova (Slovak Film Commission), Tanja Ladović Blažević (Filming in Croatia), and Jurate Pazikaite (Vilnius Film Office) were elected new members of the EUFCN Board. Alexandra Luetkens (Film Commission Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein) was confirmed on the Board. They join Lefteris Eleftheriou (Cyprus Film Commission), Carlota Guerrero (Catalunya Film Commission), Adrian A. Mitchell (Oslo Film Commission) and Nevina Satta (Sardegna Film Commission) on the EUFCN Board.

The EUFCN Board of Directors is composed of 8 members and will be renewed in two years.

Carlota Guerrero and Adrian A. Mitchell are the new Co-Presidents of the Association. They take over Pavlina Zipkova (Czech Film Commission) and Mikael Svensson (Southern Sweden Film Commission), after four years of wonderful service to the network.

“It’s an honour to take on the challenge of the EUFCN presidency together with my colleague Adrian Mitchell,” says Carlota Guerrero. “We will continue to work on initiatives that bring value to all the members of the network, striving to connect European film commissions to the global film industry.”

“I feel honored and take great privilege to join the EUFCN’s unique (shared) presidency,” says Adrian A. Mitchell. “Along with my good and very competent colleague and co-president, Carlota Guerrero, we look forward to work for the European Film Commissions, compassing the European perspective and culture into an expanding global film industry, and tightening the links between our partners in North- and Latin America, Asia, Africa and Oceania.”

The new EUFCN Board of Directors is therefore composed of:

Carlota Guerrero (Catalunya Film Commission) – Co-President
Adrian A. Mitchell (Oslo Film Commission) – Co-President
Nevina Satta (Sardegna Film Commission) – General Secretary
Alexandra Luetkens (Film Commission Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein) – Treasurer
