25fps is the current standard for European television.

 

Theatrical is 24 fps.

It depends if they're mainly made for television. They commomly just transmit at 25 fps rather than convert as such, they may do a pitch shift for the sound.

On HD, 24, 25, 30 are acceptable world wide, the player does the conversion as the color standard is the same. 

On SD, 24 is acceptable world wide (the player does the conversion if necessary), but 25 is PAL color only and 30 is NTSC color only.

European broadcast HD TV productions are shot at 25 fps, what happens for distribution aterwards is another matter.

As far as DVD goes a Region 0 NTSC DVD can be played worldwide without issue.

The player just handles it. Obviously it's lower res than a PAL DVD however (480p vs 576p)
