National Film Institute has been a member of EFAD since its establishment.
EFAD (European Film Agency Directors Association) is the voice of national European Film Agencies, bringing together the directors of national film funds from European countries. The EFAD membership covers countries of the European Union as well as Iceland, Norway, the Republic of North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
The 35 EFAD members are government or government associated public bodies in charge of national funding for the audiovisual sector and with the responsibility to advise or regulate on all aspects of audiovisual policies. In total, the EFAD members and their governments fund around three billion Euros every year through subsidies and tax reliefs with an aim of fostering the creation, production, promotion, distribution, and exhibition of European audiovisual and cinematographic works.
