The new programme will ensure that the achievements of the current film and cultural support programmes have a lasting legacy. This new programme provides support to every link in the production chain: from creation/production to distribution/dissemination/promotion, including the development of vocational training courses.
The first call for proposals for the programme will make it possible to finance schemes to the tune of €12 million, €7 million of which will be in the film/audiovisual domain and €5 million for other cultural industries, with a view to:
