Within the specific objective of promoting non-national circulation, one of the priorities of the MEDIA Sub-programme shall be supporting theatrical distribution through non-national marketing, branding, distribution and exhibition of audiovisual works.
The MEDIA Sub-programme shall provide support for the following:
- establishing systems of support for the distribution of non-national European films through theatrical distribution and on all other platforms as well as for international sales activities; in particular the subtitling, dubbing and audio-description of audiovisual works.
The aim of creating a “Selective scheme” is to encourage and support the wider distribution of recent non-national European films by encouraging sales agents and theatrical distributors in particular to invest in promotion and adequate distribution of non-national European films.
As the financial support is the primary aim of the EU grant, the maximum amount of the grant that can be allocated to third parties is fixed at the limit of 150.000€.
- Development of pan-European distribution strategies for non-national European films
- Increase in the investment in promotion and distribution of non-national European films.
- Develop links between the production and distribution sector thus improving the competitive position of non-national European films.
