The European Commission has issued annual calls for proposals since 1992 for support for attending film festivals and other audiovisual events to promote European films and their distribution across Europe. The objectives and added value of this initiative are widely appreciated.
Every year the MEDIA programme supports more than a hundred festivals in Europe notable for their particularly rich and varied programme of European films; their efforts to engage with the general public; and their activities involving professionals in large numbers.
For some time the MEDIA programme has also fostered networking and collaboration between festivals to promote exchanges and strengthen the diversity of the films being produced.
