The Framework Group consists of the British Film Institute (BFI; Mark Reid is the lead contact); the Danish Film Institute (DFI; Charlotte Giese); the Cinémathèque Française (Nathalie Bourgeois); Vision Kino in Germany (Sabine Genz); and The Film Space (Ian Wall).The course and web materials were put together by teams from these organisations, together with colleagues from Karpos (Greece) and the Moving Image Media Association (Hungary). The training seminars backing the course and website were co-ordinated by the Estonian Film Institute; Meno Avilys (Lithuania); the Slovenian Film Centre and Kinodvor (Slovenia); as well as Karpos (with the Greek Film Centre) and MIMEA (with the Hungarian Film Centre).
