A focus in this paper is the issue of possible over-production of European films, as spelled out or implied in a number of reports, chapters, books and doctoral dissertations on European cinema during the last decade.

Additionally, the fund has enabled larger production volumes in Sweden, Scandinavia and Northern Europe during the last two decades.
