European Film Academy Starts Heritage Department

The European Film Academy informs about broadening its scope and embracing European cinema from the classics to the contemporary to celebrate the rich and diverse film heritage of Europe. This will include the work of the honorary award recipients. From this year onwards, it will also focus on special anniversaries or specific theme programmes all relating to European film.

For this, the European Film Academy has set up a new European Film Heritage department, which is led by Pascal Edelmann. As a first step, the European Film Academy has been building up a pan-European film heritage network, uniting cinematheques, film archives and institutions to share information on anniversaries of filmmakers, films, institutions, or specific themes relevant to the cinema history in the various European countries and regions. From now onwards, the European Film Academy aims to actively connect various initiatives and make them much more widely known among lovers of European cinema.
