Europe loves European Festivals

A privileged place for meetings, exchanges and discovery, festivals provide a vibrant and accessible environment for the widest variety of talent, stories and emotions that constitute Europe’s cinematography.

The MEDIA Programme of the European Union aims to promote European audiovisual heritage, to encourage the circulation of films outside their own borders and to foster audiovisual industry competitiveness.

The MEDIA Programme acknowledges the cultural, educational, social and economic role of festivals by co-financing more than ninety festivals each year, programming more than twenty thousand screenings of European works to nearly three millions audience across Europe.

This year, the MEDIA programme is celebrating its twentieth birthday so we are especially proud to look back on how much the European film industry has developed over this period, and to stress our continued commitment to supporting the European film industry in the future.

MEDIA is pleased to support the twenty-third edition of the États généraux du film documentaire of Lussas and we extend our best wishes to all of the festival goers for an enjoyable and stimulating event.
