EVOLVING FINANCING MODELS: WHAT ROLE FOR MEDIA? 

The discussion will look at how the future MEDIA programme could best add value in a changing European audiovisual landscape where financing becomes scarce. Member States' public funding represents by far the major source of public support. How are the audiovisual ecosytems evolving? How are the national support schemes being revised to adapt to this reality? How can MEDIA not only complement but also be a lever for private initiative and investment? The discussion will also address how these various instruments can cooperate and complement each other so that they can be combined to effectively support the sector across the value chain, whether as regards classic e.g. cinema or new formats e.g. web-series or, as regards established players or newcomers.

HIGHLIGHT ON INCREASING MARKET SHARES AND  AUDIENCES FOR EUROPEAN CREATIONS

European film makers find inspiration from a mosaic of cultures and languages and, with the help of public support, produce a high volume of films.  However, recent figures from the Observatory show that, in spite of their cultural merit, these films find it difficult to circulate across borders. The discussion will look at how- promotion of European works and cross-border distribution can be enhanced.  Should the models of collaboration among professionals be adapted in order to better promote the films? Should promotional activities be more vigorously supported by MEDIA? Should this support benefit to fewer or more audiovisual works? What potential implications would it have on the models of distribution?
