In November 2016 the European Audiovisual Observatory has carried out a survey among the members of the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes. The objective was to assess the access to the film works in their collections in the context of education and research. 32 ACE members replied to the survey, representing over 1.1million film works.
The study « Access to film works in the collections of Film Heritage Institutions in the context of education and research » was part of a research project supported by the European Commission. » It can be downloaded HERE.
