Future Challenges and Funding Opportunities for Film and Audiovisual Schools and Universities in Europe

The MEDIA unit of the Education Audiovisual Culture Executive Agency organised an Initial Training Conference on 21/22 March 2011. This brought together more than 160 people representing higher education institutions – including most national film schools from across Europe – and private sector companies. The conference was an occasion to present all the EU instruments for mobility and university collaboration in- and outside Europe. Key challenges and opportunities to collaborate for film and AV schools/universities in Europe were discussed. Four panels explored topical issues, such as the potential of 3D techniques; the complexity of making European TV co-production series; possibilities intrinsic to new media as a new way of telling stories; problems and good practice related to students' integration in the professional world.
