Funds for: To support theatrical distribution
Main beneficiaries: European film / cinema distributors

Priorities and funded actions:

– To support theatrical distribution through transnational marketing, branding, distribution and exhibition of audiovisual works;
– To establish 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

– To encourage and support the wider transnational distribution of recent European films by providing funds to distributors, based upon their performance on the market, for further reinvestment in the promotion and distribution (including on-line) of new nonnational European films; 
– To encourage 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

Among financed actions
The Automatic support scheme works in two phases:
* 1. The generation of a potential fund, proportional to the number of paying admission tickets sold during the reference period for non-national European films in countries participating in the MEDIA Sub-programme, up to a fixed ceiling per film and adjusted for each country.
* 2. Reinvestment: the potential fund thus generated by each company must be reinvested in:
– The co-production of eligible non-national European films;
– The acquisition of distribution rights, for example by means of minimum guarantees, of eligible non-national European films; 
– The release of eligible non-national European films
