We are delighted to announce our new Handbook of "State Aid for Film. Finance, Industries and Regulation" is now published by Springer International Publishing.


The media world is undergoing a fundamental transformation in which companies and users are shaping new digital business models. In this process of change, innovation in processes as well as a solid grasp of market developments, potentials and international standards of comparison are crucial. State aid for film is a contested terrain, stricken with many challenges and threats to industry, filmmakers and government administration. However, it remains a pivotal tool for cultural diversity in the field of film media and other audio-visual services. This chapter provides a synoptic overview of key issues covered in the book.

This handbook provides a comprehensive analysis of today's film industry and its global challenges, analyses public funding schemes for different national film industries, presents a reference framework to evaluate public funding schemes about goals, finance instruments, governance structures, and efficacies, and elaborates whether public funding is an effective tool for safeguarding the European film industry. This book is a comprehensive analysis of the specificities of public film funding on an international scale. It shows how public funding schemes add value to film-making and other audio-visual productions and provides a comprehensive analysis of today's global challenges in the film industry such as industry change, digital transformation, and shifting audience tastes. Based on insights from fields such as cultural economics, media economics, media management and media governance studies, the authors illustrate how public spending shapes the financial fitness of national and international film industries. This highly informative book will help both scholars and practitioners in the film industry to understand the complexity of issues and the requirements necessary to preserve the social benefits of film as an important cultural good.
