The 2009 edition also includes a special focus on the 2004 expansion of the European Union and the development of cinema in the Union’s ten new member countries: Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia. The guide also includes detailed breakdowns of international box office statistics and film festival award-winners.
