Kjersti Mo
CEO of the Norwegian Film Institute 



I am honored and grateful to be appointed Vice-President of EFAD. Coming from a small country outside the European Union, I am especially thankful for the opportunity to represent the voices of the EFAD countries on the geographical margins among the 37 association members To me, it is a matter of great urgency to defend artistic freedom for filmmakers and artists. Our cultural values must never be taken for granted, especially in these challenging times. While we need to both protect and examine our value systems, we must also work towards a more diverse film industry in Europe. As Vice President of EFAD, I hope I can contribute towards this important goal”.
