The terms film industry and film industry refer to the branch of industry that deals with the production, reproduction and distribution of cinema , television and other films . This includes companies such as film production companies and film distributors .
Film production employs dozens of people in preparation and follow-up. Between five (young talent or reportage production) and a hundred people (narrative cinema) are at work during the shooting. The question of film financing is therefore important . In 2005, 4603 feature films were made worldwide, most of them in India, followed by the United States.
Film rental and distribution
In the industrialized nations and the western world , film distribution and distribution is mostly dominated by US companies. From the First World War onwards, with the help of the large American market, they were able to build up a profitable structure from production to distribution and marketing. The European market, which is divided into many countries and languages and shaken by two world wars, has a small-scale structure made up of numerous companies in production and sales. This is why European film productions are mostly dependent on government subsidies, while US companies geared towards mass taste can already collect production costs on their home market.
Cinemas and visits
In 2004 around 1 billion cinema tickets were sold in the EU . France had the most admissions to the cinema with around 195 million visits. The European country with the richest population, Germany, recorded the second highest number of visitors with 156.7 million visits. In 2005, however, the number of visitors fell again.
Depending on government subsidies and laws, national productions in Europe record between 1.7% ( Belgium ) and 38.4% ( France ) of visits. Viewed across Europe, around 25% of all admissions to the cinema go to European film productions, 60% to American ones. In 2006 German films had a market share of 25.8% in their own country.
