Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe - The Guide 2015-2016

Brussels, European Festivals Association, 2015, 512 pages

EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) is a European Commission pilot project for a European Platform for Festivals in the field of culture, initiated by the European Festivals Association (EFA), the umbrella organization for festivals across Europe and beyond, and supported by the European Parliament. It brings together festivals that are deeply committed to the arts, their communities and European values in a new and dynamic platform and honours them with the EFFE Labels and EFFE Awards. In its quest to increase access to Europe's diverse festivals and extend their reach to audiences across the world, EFFE launched the Guide to Europe's Festivals 2015-2016, containing 760 festivals from 31 countries with EFFE's quality label. EFFE's almost 100 experts at the national level and its International Jury composed of eight distinguished festival directors evaluated festivals and made the final selection of those receiving this quality label. In accord to this, the EFFE Guide is the festival guidebook celebrating the label and award recipients. It contains both inspiring articles on festival life as well as essential details on each festival taking part in this platform. Inclusion in the EFFE Guide makes festivals information easily accessible to audiences, colleagues in the arts, artists, performing arts companies, public authorities at all levels, sponsors and the media.
