Abstract: It could be argued that European cinema does not exist, except as a bureaucratic dream or a promotional tool for national producers and distributors of art house films. And insofar as it does  exist, European cinema has over the past three decades been funded mainly by governmental subsidy schemes, public service television, or via the European Union, that is, the tax payer.
