Appearing in the first 2007 issue of the of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Competition’s Competition Policy Newsletter, “State aid for films—a policy in motion?” was written jointly by Jérôme Broche, Obhi Chatterjee, Irina Orssich and Nóra Tosics. In the opening paragraph, the authors note that the European Commission approved the new UK and German film support schemes in late 2006.

It also considers the future perspectives of the Commission's state aid policy in this field. You can read the entire article by clicking here.
