ECIPE Seminar: The diverging path of French and Korean film industries: Lessons on audiovisual policy

September 25 2014
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Patrick Messerlin, Jimmyn Parc
Time: 08:30

In the last two years, the French audiovisual sector has witnessed an intense fight between the defensive and traditional vested interests against new forces that are eager to seize the opportunities presented by digital technology – This debate is taking place against a stagnating domestic market share of French movies despite a doubling of public subsidies. Based on some new exhaustive data, Patrick Messerlin’s new report assesses the failure of the current French audiovisual policy – from both an economic and cultural perspective.

Meanwhile, the Korean film industry has witnessed a new renaissance: the “Korean Wave” has reached an unprecedented level of popularity at home and abroad, to much envy of the EU policymakers. Jimmyn Parc’s presents a paper that explains the fall and rise of the Korean film industry, independently from any government policy.

The papers presented will provide some lessons for reshaping the EU and French audiovisual policies, and how to take full advantage of what technology offers to an industry so crucial for culture and soft power.
Speakers: Patrick Messerlin is Professor Emeritus at Sciences Po Paris, and Chairman of ECIPEs’ Steering Committee; Jimmyn Parc is Researcher at the EU Center, Seoul National University and at Sciences Po Paris.
