What is the European Film Gateway - what is it not?
The European Film Gateway is a web portal offering access to film and film-related treasures collected and preserved by 16 European film archives. It is a search engine which offers you centralised access to digital collections dispersed on different national websites. Instead of having to visit the individual websites you can search through them via the EFG. The EFG is neither a filmographic database nor a video on demand portal, instead it showcases and focuses on archival objects.
