Slovenian Film Centre is a member of EFARN which was created in 2003 on the initiative of the UK Film Council, in the framework of the European Film Agency Directors (EFAD) group. Like the EFAD, EFARN is an informal grouping. EFARN brings together researchers actively involved in the collection, analysis and publication of data on the European film industry. These researchers represent a total of 45 different bodies, principally film agencies but also a number of other organisations active in this domain.

The purpose in establishing this group was to provide a forum for the exchange of information and best practice, to work towards improving the availability of data on a pan-European level and to explore the possibility of common projects.

The group meets once a year to discuss a variety of subjects, with one or more invited speakers on specific topics.

The European Audiovisual Observatory acts as the secretariat to the EFARN and hosts a communication platform on a secure server providing access to documents and discussion forums for members.
