European Cinema promoting intercultural dialogue
"As a film maker I think it is important to go into worlds that are not your own"
(Sarah Gavron on her 2007 film Brick Lane)
Rainbow is a collection of case studies highlighting the growing diversity of cultural identity and expression, through film helping to build bridges between communities and to stimulate a richer set of connections between European cultures and cultures outside Europe.
The stories illustrate how people with talent and vision, often working in partnership with national film agencies, are helping to make European cinema a vehicle for an ongoing dialogue between the cultures of Europe and elsewhere, and a stimulant for the values of tolerance, curiosity and mutual respect.
