With digitisation, the international film festival landscape has undergone exorbitant and sustained growth and have established their own ecosystem to function as a key force and power grid in the film business.

They ensure a plurality in the cinema landscape - which also largely reflects the cultural and linguistic diversity of Europe – and substantially help European filmworks to achieve prominence, visibility, cross-border access and audience reach.

Film festivals today, and even more so in the future, represent a major instrument to foster mutual understanding, to maintain open, inclusive and creative societies and to make our European identity more tangible.
