Also this year, the European Audiovisual Observatory presented the World film market trends within the occasion of the Cannes March√© du Film. Although the gradual recovery of the European cinema market could be demonstrated with statistical support, another development became obvious at the same time: „while theatrical exploitation was already difficult for European films, it became even more difficult“. A trend that can be seen today not only with regard to theatrical productions on the domestic markets, but especially when it comes to film works crossing European borders. Details of the analyses can be found in the online presentation FOCUS 2023 in English here.
