The Euro-Mediterranean Conference was created in 1995 in collaboration with the European Parliament and the International Council for Film and Television of UNESCO. The main aim was to create a network and several projects enabling the establishment of a euro-mediterranean integration and a socio-economic development of the area. The conference represents one of the most prestigious cultural events at the Venice Film Festival and an opportunity for the creation of a dialogue between many stakeholders within the cultural, audiovisual communication and ICTs fields.
