Description of programme
"Media"
The audiovisual sector is transforming with the rise of digital technology. This creates additional issues, such as the protection of intellectual property, securing access to financing in a relatively new and changing sector, and ensuring the proper distribution of works.
The Media sub-programme, which supports the audiovisual and multimedia sector, provides opportunities for:
  • Initiatives that aim to promote the distribution of works and the access to markets
  • Initiatives for the development of projects or a set of projects (slate funding)
  • Support for the production of television programmes or video games
  • Activities to increase interest in and improve access to audiovisual works
  • Activities that promote interests in films, such as cinema networks or film festivals
  • Measures that facilitate international co-production and strengthen the circulation and distribution of works
  • Activities to build the skills and capacities of audiovisual sector professionals
