Description of programme
"Creative Europe"

Creative Europe's stated aims are to help the cultural and creative sectors seize the opportunities of the digital age and globalisation, enable the sectors to reach their economic potential, contributing to sustainable growth, jobs, and social cohesion, and to give Europe's culture and media sectors access to new international opportunities, markets, and audiences.
This will, amongst others, involve funding for:

  • artists and cultural professionals
  • cinemas
  • films
  • book translations
Description of programme
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.

  •  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
