Title Europe vs. Hollywood: Brief Historical Overview of an Economic and Cultural Battle Summary Along their first century of existence, the European and the American motion picture industries have developed a paradoxical relationship of cooperation and competition. Whereas in the case of Hollywood the historical evolution has been one of ‘expansion’ and ‘consolidation’, the development of the European film industry on the contrary is more of ‘survival’ and ‘defense’. This article presents a brief historical evolution of this unbalanced economical and cultural exchange throughout four long periods, in an attempt to offer a panoramic and comparative view as a framework for future research. Keywords Europe, Hollywood, film industry, economic issues, cultural issues, globalization, digitization
