MEDIA Mundus — Call for proposals 2013 MEDIA Mundus 2013 Closed!


The aims of the MEDIA Mundus programme are to increase the competitiveness of the European audiovisual industry, to enable Europe to play its cultural and political role in the world more effectively and to increase consumer choice and cultural diversity. The programme will seek to improve access to third-country markets and to build trust and long-term working relationships.

The MEDIA Mundus programme supports cooperation projects between European professionals and profes­sionals from third countries, to the mutual benefit of the European audiovisual sector and the one of third countries.


  • Action 1 — Support for training: this action aims at strengthening the skills of European and third-country professionals: Option 1 supports the inclusion of students/professionals and teachers from non-EU countries in initial or continuous training schemes supported by the MEDIA 2007 programme. Option 2 supports the creation of a continuous training scheme specific to MEDIA Mundus.
  • Action 2 — Support for market access: this action supports projects to promote access to international markets for audiovisual works. These projects concern the development and/or pre-production phases (for example international co-production markets) and activities downstream (events facilitating inter­national sales of the works).
  • Action 3 — Support for distribution and circulation: this action aims at encouraging distribution, promotion, screening and diffusion of European works in third-country markets and of audiovisual works from third countries in Europe under optimum conditions.
  • Action 4 — Cross-over activities: this action aims at supporting projects of a cross-cutting nature, i.e. touching upon several priorities of this programme, e.g. trainings with subsequent pitching events at co-production meetings.
