Preparatory Action on circulation of European films in the digital era
On 26 October 2011, the European Parliament adopted a budget of EUR 2 million for a first year of the Preparatory Action "Circulation of European films in the digital era". The aim of this action is to test the possible beneficial impact on a film's transnational circulation and global audience of simultaneous or quasi-simultaneous release on distribution platforms and in a number of territories.
This action pursues three complementary and inseparable objectives:
- improving conditions for the circulation of European films within the European Union;
- increasing and expanding the global audience for European films;
- informing market players and decision makers of changes likely to improve complementarity between distribution platforms.
