Call for proposals — Preparatory action - Circulation of films in the digital era DIGITAL FILMS Closed!


The purpose of this action is to investigate innovative strategies for the dissemination of European films (cinema screenings, DVDs, video on demand, festivals, television channels, etc.). The main aim is to establish conditions under which broadcasting media may more readily complement one another, so that European films can cross national borders more easily and reach a wider audience within the European Union.


The preparatory action will support projects designed to test the simultaneous (or virtually simultaneous) release of films across all media and in several European territories.
