“The topics in Coproducing Europe are original and relatively unexplored. The text is both theoretically and methodologically eclectic: different authors from different disciplines and anthropology sub-disciplines are used to address its arguments on film coproduction and festivals; field research and interviews intermingle with text analysis of different film databases,EU treaties and programs” • Aliki Angelidou, Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences


Up until the 1990s, when the EU launched film policies intended to encourage political and cultural collaboration among its member states, film coproductions were limited to specific industries and mostly based on the cultural and national values of individual nations. Coproducing Europe explores the impact of these EU policies on the coproduction networks that now serve as a driving force in contemporary creative economies. By focusing on regional film markets in Thessaloniki, Sarajevo and Tbilisi, this comparative ethnography looks beyond the economic nature of film coproductions to their role in Europeanization, memories of the Cold War and preconstructed political agendas.

Eleni Sideri is Assistant Professor at the Department of Balkan, Slavic, and Oriental Studies at the University of Macedonia. She is coeditor, with Lydia Efthymia Roupakia, of Religions and Migrations in the Black Sea Region (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2017).
