EFA Short Matters

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. Current EFA Chairman is French producer Yves Marmion.

The European Film Academy (EFA) now unites 2,800 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.

 

Stvaranje Europske filmske akademije (EFA) bila je inicijativa skupine najboljih europskih filmaša koji su se okupili povodom prve ceremonije dodjele Europskih filmskih nagrada u studenom 1988. godine. EFA je napokon osnovana 1989. godine kao Europsko filmsko društvo, a osnovali su ju Ingmar Bergman, prvi predsjednik Akademije, i 40 filmaša kako bi unaprijedili interese europske filmske industrije. Wim Wenders je izabran za prvog predsjedatelja udruženja koje je dvije godine poslije preimenovano u Europsku filmsku akademiju. Wenders je 1996. godine zamijenio Bergmana na mjestu predsjednika EFA-e, a britanski producent Nik Powell je izabran za predsjedatelja EFA-inog odbora. Francuski producent Humbert Balsan bio je sljedeći predsjedatelj odbora sve do svoje iznenadne smrti 2005. godine. Trenutni predsjedatelj EFA-e je francuski producent Yves Marmion.

Europska filmska akademija (EFA) danas povezuje viÅ¡e od 2 800 europskih filmskih profesionalaca sa zajedniÄ?kim ciljem promoviranja europske filmske kulture. Tijekom cijele godine, EFA pokreće i sudjeluje u brojnim aktivnostima vezanima uz filmsku politiku kao i ekonomske i umjetniÄ?ke aspekte te aspekte poduÄ?avanja. Program ukljuÄ?uje konferencije, seminare i radionice s ciljem spajanja industrije i kreativnosti. Te aktivnosti svoj vrhunac imaju na godiÅ¡njoj dodjeli Europskih filmskih nagrada.
