Sub-programme MEDIA

The MEDIA sub-programme of Creative Europe supports the EU film and audiovisual industries financially in the development, distribution and promotion of their work. It helps to launch projects with a European dimension and nurtures new technologies; it enables European films and audiovisual works to find markets beyond national and European, borders; it funds training and development schemes. The training and market access schemes have a new "Mundus" dimension.

For 2014 three new initiatives in Audience Development & Film Literacy, International Co-productions and Video Games will be launched. More innovations will follow including a new Financial Instrument for the Creative sector.
