October 24, 2017

 

We are proud to announce that Tonia Mishiali, PAUSE's director, is now a voting member of the European Film Academy. You can view her profile HERE.

 

Founded in 1988, the European Film Academy now unites more than 3,200 European film professionals with the common aim of promoting Europe’s film culture.

 

The creation of the European Film Academy (EFA) was the initiative of a group of Europe’s finest filmmakers brought together on the occasion of the first European Film Awards Ceremony held in November 1988. EFA was finally founded in 1989 as the European Cinema Society by its first president Ingmar Bergman and 40 filmmakers to advance the interests of the European film industry. Wim Wenders was elected as first chairman of the association which two years later was renamed European Film Academy. In 1996, he followed Ingmar Bergman as president of the EFA while British producer Nik Powell was elected as chairman of the EFA Board. He was followed by French producer Humbert Balsan who was chairman from 2003 until his sudden death in 2005 and French producer Yves Marmion until 2013. Current chairwoman is Polish director Agnieszka Holland.

The European Film Academy (EFA) now unites more than 3,000 European film professionals with the common aim of promoting European film culture. Throughout the year, the EFA initiates and participates in a series of activities dealing with film politics as well as economic, artistic, and training aspects. The programme includes conferences, seminars and workshops, and a common goal is to build a bridge between creativity and the industry. These activities culminate in the annual presentation of the European Film Awards.

Since its early beginnings, Berlin has been the seat of the EFA Secretariat where it is registered as a non-profit association.
