Media International

Overview

From 2008 - 2010 the EU provided €8M for 71 projects as a result of three calls for proposal under MEDIA International, a preparatory action which aimed to explore ways of reinforcing cooperation between European and third-country professionals from the audiovisual industry on a basis of mutual benefit. It also aimed to encourage a two-way flow of cinematographic/audiovisual works.

This preparatory action provided the opportunity to test a further avenue for structuring and strengthening relations and networks between EU and third countries' professionals in the audiovisual sector, for the mutual benefit of the European industry and the third countries involved.
