Cine-Regio presents its Building Bridges report

The European network of regional film funds Cine-Regio will present its 2016 Focus Report Building Bridges – Diversity in European film at the 66th Berlinale, during Cine-Regio yearly strategic meeting, hosted this year at the Thüringer Landesvertretung. 

The report analyses and evaluates current and potential action to improve the diversity of European film.

more important in the European context in general and in particular in European policy making. The topic is therefore part of Cine-Regio’s public affair activities, which is one of the core activities of Cine-Regio – to be the voice and ears of the regional film funds in EU-matters. The network sponsors (Film i Väst, Flanders Audiovisual Fund and Vienna Film Fund) have assured the availability of the report as a free download from the web of CineRegio. 

General secretary Charlotte Appelgren says, “By assessing actions and policies so far, combined with a sharp analysis of the current market situation we have a strong tool for the formulation of effective strategies, which will make a significant impact on diversity.” 

Cine-Regio's commitment to strengthening and promoting cultural diversity is actually on show at this year's Berlin Film Festival, where its members have supported 36% of all EU films. In total 47 titles selected for the official Berlinale programme have been backed by the members of the network of regional film funds, including six of the entrants in this year's Main Competition (Anne Zohra Berrached’s 24 Weeks [+see also:
