Board Member European Children’s Film Association (

ECFA, founded in 1988, is the organisation for all who are interested in high quality films for children and young people: film makers, producers, promoters, distributors, exhibitors, TV-programmers, festival organizers and film educators.
Audio-visual media in general and cinema in particular are vehicles for artistic communication and for cultural transmission. Now that the world is becoming a "global village", children and young people have more and more access to culture and those who use the cinematic media are more numerous than we can imagine. The aim of ECFA is to bring the children in contact with the great machine called cinema.

Farapi S.L. is a university spin-off company based in San Sebastian (Basque Country in Spain). It was founded in 2004 and undertakes applied social anthropology in a variety of arenas: mobility, urban planning, gender...Our team has expertise in the anthropological methodology: ethnography, netnography, and qualitative and participative investigation, which consists of establishing direct contact with those involved in each area within their own contexts and organisations. Such a thorough examination leads to an understanding of the differing values, attitudes, beliefs, expectations and perspectives of those involved; and thus of the factors which determine behaviours and group dynamics. A long-term aim is involvement in projects to promote Human Rights.
