Project description

English EN

The transformation of Europe’s past film industry

Between 1930 and 1960, the European film industry flourished in Britain, France, Germany and Italy. However, a knowledge gap exists on the factors that affected the sector due to war circumstances and post-war events, which included political changes, the labour movement, and the introduction of new technologies. The EU funded STUDIOTEC project suggests a new methodology based on the comparison of empirical data and transnational processes. The project will study film studios as both artistic and entrepreneurial structures and will evaluate how the transnational movement affected creative acts. The research will be based on interconnected issues including the studio’s infrastructures, artistic creativity, the role of politics, the economy and labour relations.
