MEDIA Mundus: Commission's €5 million boost for international film projects
Some 35 film-related projects are to receive a total of €5 million in funding from the MEDIA Mundus programme – the European Union's international cooperation and exchange programme for the audiovisual industry.
"Everyone loves to see good films in the cinema and on TV. MEDIA Mundus – the global version of our successful MEDIA programme – encourages international co-productions, boosts worldwide distribution and makes the audiovisual industry more competitive. The idea is to give audiences more choice and the chance to see films made all over the world", said Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.
