Cooperation with third countries

Most cooperation agreements with third countries include a cultural dimension. The European Union seeks to promote dialogue between cultures and to develop local and regional cultural industries.

This cooperation in the audiovisual sector is particularly advanced in the Cotonou partnership and the Euro-Mediterranean partnership.

In addition to the support programmes for the audiovisual, the European Commission Delegations organise cultural festivals, often together with the Member States' embassies and the European cultural institutions, which include screenings of European films.
