From the Publisher
The European Film Academy was founded in 1988 as a cinematic brotherhood that would bring together film-makers from across the East- West divide. This volume features articles and interviews with leading directors, writers, producers, actors, cinematographers, critics, directors of festivals and cinema institutions - as well as audience members from across the wide swathe of Europe - in which they discuss the question: What is a European film? The volume also contains a Foreword by British critic Derek Malcolm.
