Difficulties with email responses
Reliable data
Recent data
- majority young people
Limited books on American cinema - very complex and in depth
Irrelevant information

Areas of further research

French speakers in America
Anglophone music and other aspects of Americanisation
Comparison of cinema with music/fashion

Despite large influence, French cinema will continue
Government funding
Female directors
Hollywood films vs Art
Always future uncertainty, changing trends, economic unpredictability
Overall I believe it is not unstoppable, that its influence is powerful but will not completely corrupt the French cinematic market.
"...not isolated and turned in on itself - like Hollywood marooned between the desert and the ocean - but an organic part of the
wider artistic community
The Farber and Farber book of French Cinema

“In France, a country where cinema has been an art at the same level as painting or literature since the New Wave,
budget issues and profit are considered as vulgar
, or at least as going against
the creative process
A.Benassy article: Is French Cinema in Decline?
Met intended outcomes
Still 'in progress'
Things I could have done differently

Strengths and Weaknesses of implementation:
Time management
Meeting deadlines
Being proactive
Networking (e-mail replies)
