Good news for three UK companies after the release of updated results

Updated results from four calls have been published, with companies added from reserve lists increasing the number of funded UK organisations by three.

Chris Fell, Director of Leeds International Film Festival, Leeds City Council, says:

“We are delighted to receive continued support from Creative Europe's MEDIA sub-programme for Leeds International Film Festival. Since 2000, MEDIA funding has enabled us to share over 4,000 European films with our audiences, making a major long-term impact on access to outstanding and diverse filmmaking in the North of England."

"At the 30th anniversary Leeds International Film Festival in November 2016 we achieved our largest audiences yet for our widest-ever selection of European films, culminating in record attendance for our closing night screening of LUX Prize-winner Toni Erdmann.”

An additional co-production fund, Sørfond+ has also been supported through the International Co-Productions Funds scheme. The fund is due to open soon and will support fiction and documentary projects with a main producer/subject from one of the countries on the DAC-list, in co-production with a minority producer from one of the Nordic, Baltic or other countries particpating in the MEDIA sub-programme.
