The new Creative Europe Programme 2021-2027 is in the making. Unfortunately, in the new Regulation, proposed by the European Commission, children’s media are regarded in an unsatisfactory way, not like they deserve.
That’s why the State Chancellery of Thuringia asked KIDS Regio and ECFA for advice. Together, both platforms carefully studied the text and prepared amendments, taking into consideration children’s and young people’s media in general, and specifically feature films and documentaries for this target group, as well as media literacy.
These amendments are already supported by the State Chancellery of Thuringia and by CineRegio, the pan-European association of 44 regional Film Funds. Furthermore they have been spread throughout the ECFA and KIDS Regio networks.
Now we hope that many stakeholders (aren’t you all?) will take action to shape the Creative Europe Programme 2021-2027. Therefore you should get in touch with “your” members of the CULT (Culture & Education) Committee of the European Parliament, as well as with other people / institutions who could support our cause.
