UNIC, the Union Internationale des Cinémas / International Union of Cinemas, is the European grouping of cinema trade associations and key operators, covering 36 territories across the region. We promote the cultural, social and economic benefits of a vibrant cinema-going culture in Europe and provide a strong and influential voice for European cinema operators on issues of shared interest.

In 2016, cinemas across UNIC territories accounted for 1.28 billion admissions and €8.4 billion box office revenue – 24 per cent of the global theatrical market for films, confirming once again the importance of Europe as a key building block of the global motion picture business.
