MEDIA 2007 Call for Proposals EACEA/06/10 - Support for the transnational distribution of European films - The ‘Sales agent scheme’ 2010 EACEA/06/10 Closed!


This call for proposals is based on the decision of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a single pluriannual programme for Community actions in the audiovisual field for the period 2007-2013. One of the objectives of the Programme is to enhance the exportation and international distribution of European films, especially non-national films, within Europe.

The scheme also aims 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.
