Nisi Masa

Nisi Masa is named after the classic film, 8 1/2 by Federico Fellini where Marcello Mastroianni repeats the phrase “Asa Nisi Masa.” This incantation belongs to no specific language and reflects the cinematic and cross-border spirit of the network. It is a non-profit organisation and network of 31 associations in Europe supported by the European Union, the Council of Europe and the European Cultural Foundation. It functions as a platform for discussion and collaboration amongst young filmmakers with the purpose of bringing together new talent and developing cross-cultural audiovisual projects with a focus on European cinema.

There are several projects which fall under the Nisi Masa umbrella including Bright Young Screens, a six-day conference which deals with perspectives on large film events and screenings and Generator which functions as a youth audiovisual forum amongst other projects.

Nisi Masa also organises workshops, conferences, and seminars in addition to promoting opportunities, short films, editing publications, and producing a magazine.
