An ambitious multi-year collaboration of 21 film archives from 15 countries in Europe, the EFG1914 covers all the different genres and sub-genres of film during the World War I era: newsreels, documentaries, fiction films, propaganda films. Moreover, EFG1914 also gives access to anti-war films that were mainly produced after 1918 and which reflect the tragedies of the 1910s. This material is of special importance since only around 20% of the complete silent film production survived in the film heritage institutions. Therefore, EFG1914 set out to digitize a crucial part and a critical mass of these remaining moving image records, mostly undiscovered by the public.
