FNE and Creative Europe: FNE Introduces AV Innovation Team

FNE is introducing the first AV Innovation Team made up of Europe’s top specialists in Innovation to define what is cutting edge in the AV sector with a special emphasis on how innovation in the AV sector can provide the engine the EU’s smaller countries need to meet the challenges facing the industry today.

The FNE Innovation team is headed by Innovation specialists Peeter Nieler and Sten Kristan-Saluveer, who will be curating a series of articles on these topics and heading a unique team of the leading young specialists in AV innovation throughout Europe for FNE.

The series is interactive and we encourage you to pose questions to our team as well as share with us your own projects in the AV innovation field. We will also be organising a series of events in different locations across CEE to bring innovators, AV professionals and investors together.

The Film New Europe Association is main networking platform of professionals in the Central and Eastern Europe and Baltic region. The FNE Association board is made up of the heads of the most important film institutions in the region.

The webportal Film New Europe (FNE) with its FNE Daily newswire was chosen as the main tool to achieve the network’s objectives: FNE is the sharing of know how, visibility of regional cultural diversity and finally the voice of the region. FNE is also a pan-European connection for the region and has partnerships and activities with the main pan-European film institutions based in Western Europe.
