THE FILM Europe Media Company launched the first European film channel in mid November. The Film Europe Channel is the first pay-TV station exclusively broadcasting European cinematography produced in the 50 countries of geographical Europe, the company stated in its press release.

“We will offer productions from not only traditionally strong [filmmaking] countries like Great Britain, France, Italy, Poland or Russia, but also from smaller countries like Portugal, Denmark, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Austria or Liechtenstein,” said Ivan Hronec, director general of the company. “Another uniqueness of the Film Europe Channel is 100-percent broadcasting of films with original sound and subtitles. Our viewers have matured and now want to see films in the original full quality, both visually and sound.”

This aspect of the new channel is highlighted by its slogan ‘Film Europe Channel – Sights and Sounds of Europe’.

The broadcasting partner of the project in Slovakia and the Czech Republic is Skylink. Slovak Telekom also is offering films broadcast by the Film Europe Channel via its Magio video rental service.

The ambition of the channel is to offer winning films from film festivals as well as the most popular films: from Lars von Trier to the Diary of Bridget Jones, and from Fellini to the most recent winners of festivals in Cannes and Venice.
