The exhibition “European Film and the First World War” is part of the European Film Gateway, a web portal facilitating online access to hundreds of thousands of historical film documents as preserved in European film archives and cinémathèques. The exhibition was developed within the context of EFG1914, a project running from 2012 to 2014 and targeted on digitising films and non-film materials from and related to World War One for the European Film Gateway. The project was co-funded by the Community Programme ICT PSP of the European Union.
