Priorities and funded actions:

– To provide support for establishing systems of support for the distribution of non-national European films through theatrical distribution and on all other platforms as well as for international sales activities, in particular the subtitling, dubbing and audio-description of audiovisual works

– Encouraging and supporting the wider transnational distribution of recent European films by providing funds to sales agents, based upon their performance on the market, for further reinvestment in new non-national European films
– Promoting the development of links between the production and distribution sectors thus improving the competitive position of non-national European films and the competitiveness of European companies

Financed actions, 2 phases:
1) The generation of a potential fund, which will be calculated according to the performance of the company on the European market during the reference period
2) Reinvestment: the potential fund thus generated by each company must be reinvested in:
* Minimum guarantees or advances paid for the international sales rights on eligible European non-national films
* The promotion, marketing and advertising on the market of eligible non-national European films
– Activity designed to promote and sell the exploitation rights to a cinematographic film on the marketplace, in particular to cinema distributors
