One week ago Cannes concluded what was an exciting and fun film festival. Congratulations to all the winners!
The festival inspired us to create a collection of videos about the many film festivals of Europe. Here you’ll find historical moments at Cannes and videos that showcase the range of film and cinema events across Europe. Journey back into the first era of these glamorous celebrations starting with the World Film Festival in Denmark in 1951, to the Cinema week in Venice in 1966, through to the Warsaw Film Festival in 2013. And don’t miss the 4 wonderful short films nominated for the Gaudí Award in 2010!

World Theatre Day is an annual celebration of everything related to the stage. Started in 1961 by the International Theatre Institute, each year various national and international theatre events are organized to mark this occasion.
Theatre captures the essence of our societies, our traditions, and our culture better than perhaps any other art-form, and though performances end, plays live on for as long as they are loved and cherished. They are preserved through repetition, or described in books, or captured on film and stored in archives.
These documents; be it the plays themselves, or everything that surrounds them, are an important part of our history. We’re proud to present these memories from the past, now made available again though EUscreen.
We hope you’ll enjoy these few fun and interesting clips about European theatre from the last few decades! Feel free to search our collection for plenty more videos about theatre, dance and performance, on EUscreen.eu!
EUscreenXL announces its annual international conference to be hosted on the 3 and 4 December 2015 at the National Audiovisual Institute in Warsaw, Poland.
Content in Motion: Curating Europe’s Audiovisual Heritage
During two eventful days the EUscreen network will involve archivists, curators, broadcasters and researchers to discuss the benefits and challenges arising from the openness of archives and collections in the digital age. The availability of audiovisual heritage online provides new possibilities of curation, participation, exchange and transnational cooperation that not yet have been fully explored.
We invite you to gather in Warsaw to participate in moderated debates, workshops and face to face discussions — and leave with a richer vision of how to create efficient partnerships aimed at forward-looking curation of audiovisual heritage and at a deeper involvement of users.
Mark your calendar now and stay up to date on the must-attend event for media and audiovisual heritage enthusiasts.
More information about the conference will be available on this website in the coming months.

It’s the last day of the season for carnivalistic joys and games, and Europe has a rich tradition for carnivals and merriment. We hope you have fun with these short clips from across the continent. Feel free to search for more spectacular celebrations on EUscreen.eu!
Picture shows one of the Carnival parades taking part in London’s Notting Hill Carnival which is held every August Bank holiday. It first began in 1964 and has become one of the biggest street festivals in the world.
This continuing series on clichés about Germans deals this time with Germany’s so-called 5th season, carnival. Michael Wigge asks his countrymen what their attitude towards the merry and crazy tradition is and shows us what kind of costumes people come up with.
