Conferences

Over the years, EFA has initiated or co-organised different conferences covering a range of subjects as broad as film culture itself. Very often, the debates won’t stop with the panel’s opinions, but will carry on to include the attending Academy members, filmmakers, students, or simply film-lovers.
