Join Creative Europe Desk UK – Scotland for an information session to find out more about Creative Europe’s funding opportunities for film, TV, new media and games.
Creative Europe is the European Union's programme to support the audiovisual, cultural and creative sectors from 2014-2020. Creative Europe’s MEDIA sub-programme supports film, television and new media, and offers funding, training and networking opportunities for producers, video game developers, distributors, sales agents, audiovisual training providers, organisers of festivals, markets and networks, film education specialists and cinema exhibitors. One of the main objectives of the programme is to increase the competitiveness of the European audiovisual sector by creating opportunities to work internationally and to reach out to new audiences.
Following a general introduction to Creative Europe by Emma Valentine from Creative Europe Desk UK – Scotland, previous beneficiaries Ken Anderson, Red Kite Animation, and Ilona Morrison, Cinefile, will talk about their funded projects.
