Call for Proposals

European Programme MEDIA

The call for proposals “Development, distribution, promotion and training. Support for the transnational distribution of European films - The ‘automatic’ scheme 2013” has been published, in the framework of the European Programme MEDIA 2007, by the European Commission.

The MEDIA 2007 programme (2007-2013) is the fourth multi-annual programme since 1991 (previous programmes) and has a budget of € 755 million. It simplifies the program’s administration and strengthens  its objectives:

  • to strive for a stronger European audiovisual sector, reflecting and respecting Europe’s cultural identity and heritage;
  • to increase the circulation of European audiovisual works inside and outside the European Union;
  • to strengthen the competitiveness of the European audiovisual sector by facilitating access to financing and promoting use of digital technologies

 

The objectives of the current call for proposals “Development, distribution, promotion and training. Support for the transnational distribution of European films - The ‘automatic’ scheme 2013” of the European Programme MEDIA are:

  • to encourage and support the wider transnational distribution of recent European films by providing funds to distributors, based upon their performance on the market, for further reinvestment in new non-national European film;
  • to encourage the development of links between the production and distribution sectors thus improving the market share of European films and the competitiveness of European companies.

 

This call for proposals in the framework of the MEDIA programme is aimed at European companies specialised in the theatrical distribution of European works and whose activities contribute to the attainment of the above objectives of the MEDIA programme as described in the Council Decision.

 

Eligible participants within this call for proposal “Development, distribution, promotion and training. Support for the transnational distribution of European films - The ‘automatic’ scheme 2013” must be established in one of the following countries:

  • the 27 countries of the European Union;
  • the EEA countries, Switzerland and Croatia;
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina (under the condition of the finalisation of the negotiation process and the formalisation of the participation of this country to the MEDIA programme).

 

The actions that can be funded within the call for proposals “Development, distribution, promotion and training. Support for the transnational distribution of European films - The ‘automatic’ scheme 2013”  are:

  • generation of a potential Fund, proportional to the number of paying admission tickets sold for non-domestic European films in States participating in the Programme during the reference year (2012), up to a fixed ceiling per film and adjusted for each country;
  • Reinvestment of the potential Fund: thus generated by each company, the Fund must be reinvested in three modules (three types of action) by 1st October 2014: the co-production of non-national European films; the acquisition of distribution rights, for example by means of minimum guarantees, of non-national European films; and/or in editing costs (prints, dubbing and subtitling), promotion costs and publicity costs for non-national European films.

 

The total budget available for this call “Development, distribution, promotion and training. Support for the transnational distribution of European films - The ‘automatic’ scheme 2013” is EUR 20 442 675. The financial contribution awarded is a subsidy. The financial support from the Commission cannot exceed  40 %, 50 % or 60 % of the total eligible costs depending on the nationality of the film and the territory of distribution (see Guidelines). There is no maximum amount.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current call for proposals are:

  • 30 April 2013: proposals for the ‘generation’ of a potential fund;
  • 1 October 2014: proposals for the ‘reinvestment’ of the potential fund
