The European Commission (EC) has announced on its website that the first call for proposals for MEDIA Mundus is open.
"Cooperation with the European audiovisual industry is in strong demand around the globe as shown by the initial success of the MEDIA International Preparatory Action (2008-2010, €8 million).
The new MEDIA Mundus program (2011–2013, €15 million) will capitalize on this growing interest and the opportunities offered by global cooperation in the audiovisual industry. It will increase consumer choice by bringing more culturally diverse products to European and international markets and will create new business opportunities for audiovisual professionals from Europe and around the globe. With a €5 million budget, this first call for MEDIA Mundus focuses on actions taking place between the 01/02/2011 and 31/03/2012, in the fields of training, market access, distribution and circulation of audiovisual works. The deadline for the submission of applications is October 15."
