The chapter on Albania examines the increased transnational mobility of production funds from both the former Eastern Bloc and the West, placing particular emphasis on the international education and life experiences of Albanian filmmakers debuting or active in the late 2000s and 2010s. It identifies how this cultural cosmopolitanism has rendered Albania’s decades-long isolation a thing of the past, while fostering the development of a cinema of quality and an increase in international co-productions.

Keywords:   Albanian cinema, Cosmopolitanism, International co-productions, Transnational mobility, National cinema, Transnational cinema
