Film and television are part of people’s daily lives across Europe – but how much do you know about the process that brings them to the big (or small) screen?

This week’s ‘creativity workshop’ in the European Parliament treated just this question, exploring what it takes to make film and television in Europe.

Hosted by Jean Marie Cavada MEP and Bogdan Wenta MEP, the workshop’s participants were treated to case studies on the film and TV industries.

Steven Flint, Director Of Operations for Global Entertainment Production at FremantleMedia Group, shared some of his views on European TV companies’ experiences as global leaders in developing programmes. Charlotte Lund Thomsen, Director General of CW! member organisation the International Video Federation, explored the process behind Danish-Czech-Swedish film ‘A Royal Affair’.
