The main specific objectives of the current EACEA/27/2014 “Support for the Distribution of non-national European Films – the Cinema Automatic Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe Programme, Media Sub-Programme, are:

- to help increase recognition and visibility of cultural and creative artists and creators with a strong commitment in terms of European programming through communications activities and branding strategy, including, where appropriate, the creation of a European quality label.

The priorities of the current EACEA/27/2014 “Support for the Distribution of non-national European Films – the Cinema Automatic Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe Programme, Media Sub-Programme, are:

- the generation of a potential fund, proportional to the number of paying admission tickets sold during the reference period (2014) for non-national European films in countries participating in the MEDIA Sub-programme, up to a fixed ceiling per film and adjusted for each country.

- reinvestment: the potential fund thus generated by each company must be reinvested in:

Module 3. editing costs (prints, dubbing and subtitling), promotion costs and publicity costs for eligible non-national European films.
