The state of European cinema, a new dose of reality, Angus Finney ; [foreword by Nik Powell]

"The State of European Cinema offers a critical review of the state of the industry at the close of the twentieth century. Finney spent two years researching and carrying out interviews with more than a hundred top film professionals. His findings offer dynamic and fresh perspectives on Europe's film industry and include a detailed analysis of Europe's public subsidy funds, co-production trends and cinema distribution systems, as well as practical information on screenplay development and training and an examination of Europe's declining film-star system."--, Provided by publisher
