In what kind of state is the European film business? This study is the first in a series that provides an accessible understanding of how the world's contemporary screen industries function. It looks at all the factors in play, from government regulation to the marketing strategies behind an international success like "Run Lola Run"/"Lola Rennt". Anne Jackel evaluates how Europe's film industries operate, their working practices and the region's place within the global business of cinema. Exploring trends in production, distribution and exhibition, the book considers a range of national and pan-regional developments. Key areas of critical debate are highlighted, including private and public financing, co-production, film policy, links between the film and television industries, and the threats to "art cinema" from within and without Europe.


The historical background to Europe's film industries; developing and facilitating production; production financing and co-production; European and pan-European initiatives; film distribution networks within Europe; film exhibition and the European box office.
