Creative Europe is the European Commission’s framework program for support to the culture and audiovisual sectors.
The program is divided into two sub-programs and one cross-sectoral strand: THE MEDIA sub-program 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 including feature films, television drama, documentaries and new media to find markets beyond national and European borders; it funds training and film development schemes such as those promoting the development, distribution, or access to audiovisual works. Culture sector initiatives, such as those promoting cross-border cooperation, platforms, networking, and literary translation. A cross-sectoral strand, including a Guarantee Facility and transnational policy cooperation.
