EURIMAGES - European Cinema Support Fund

Roberto Olla

Roberto Olla was trained as a lawyer, specialising in entertainment law (PhD) and film production.

He began his career as a researcher in media law at the European University Institute in Florence before moving to Brussels where he joined the distribution department of the MEDIA Programme.

A few years later, he was appointed as legal advisor on audio-visual matters by the European Commission.

In 2002 Roberto relocated to Strasbourg where he worked as a project manager dealing with feature films for the Eurimages co-production fund. He was named Executive Director of the Fund in 2008.

Alongside his role at Eurimages, Roberto is committed to sharing his expertise and passion for independent cinema with a new generation of young professionals, lecturing at a number of training institutes and travelling widely to promote cinema co-production.

Conciliating filmmaking and law has been an enduring professional goal throughout Roberto Olla's career.
