19:45:39 Soundbite by Androulla Vassiliou (in ENGLISH): And therefore I am very happy that cinema remains at the heart of Europe's cultural policy and financial support, with the EU's new Creative Europe programme. Sometimes I hear people criticize that they have only got a 9 per cent increase. Let's not forget that the whole European budget has been decreased and only 2 or 3 programmes got an increase. Education and training, for which I'm also responsible, got a 40 per cent increase; new horizon for creativity and innovation, which is also very important for culture, and the creative Europe programme. So we should not complain. 00:00:52

19:46:42 Soundbite by Androulla Vassiliou (in ENGLISH): Yesterday the EU's Member States gave their own endorsement. Now, it only remains for us to launch the programme on the first of January. Building on the success of the MEDIA and Culture programmes, Creative Europe will open up new international opportunities, new markets and new audiences for the cultural and creative industries. On the one hand, the programme will serve as a "one stop shop" for all of these industries. On the other, it will respect the varying needs of the cultural and audiovisual sectors. The MEDIA brand – a European success story – will continue. 00:00:44
