 Support for the Distribution of non-national European Films – the "Cinema Automatic" Scheme

The MEDIA Sub-programme shall provide 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. The Cinema Automatic 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 (2015) 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 non-national European films; the acquisition of distribution rights, for example by means of minimum guarantees, of non- national European films; and/or in editing costs (prints, dubbing and subtitling), promotion costs and publicity costs for non- national European films.
