Distribution – Selective Support EACEA-21-2019


CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Support for the distribution of non-national Films – the Distribution Selective Scheme

The aim of the “Selective scheme” is to encourage and support the wider distribution of recent non-national European films by encouraging sales agents and theatrical distributors to invest in promotion and adequate distribution of non-national European films.

A minimum of 7 different distributors must be attached to the project. Out of the 7 distributors: at least 3 from high/medium capacity countries and at least 2 from small/very small capacity countries.

The film must have been majority produced by a producer/producers established in countries participating in the MEDIA sub-programme and made with a significant participation by professionals from those countries.

The film must be a work of fiction (including animated films) or documentary with a minimum duration of 60 minutes long.

For the film to be eligible its first copyright must not have been established before 2019.

The film must be released:
– between 1st March 2020 and 1st September 2021 (first deadline)
– between 1st September 2020 and 1st March 2022 (second deadline)

The action consists into:
– the coordination of the campaign by the sales agent.
