Creative Europe MEDIA
Creative Europe MEDIA provides financial support to Europe’s film and audiovisual industries for the development, distribution and promotion of their work. It nurtures projects with a European dimension and helps launch new technologies; it enables European films and audiovisual works to find audiences and markets beyond national and European borders; it funds training and market access worldwide; and it supports international co-productions, audience development and film literacy projects.
As a part of the EU’s Creative Europe programme, Creative Europe MEDIA has been a key partner of Berlinale Talents since its very first edition in 2003. The two partners share the same goals of training professionals, developing projects, building international networks, bridging markets and enabling access to new technologies. Both Berlinale Talents and Creative Europe MEDIA aim to help filmmakers find international partners, markets and audiences while also strengthening regional industries.
