In 2019 the European Commission launched a call for “Cinemas as Innovation Hubs”.
“This action will support audience development activities encouraging cinemas to provide access not only to audio-visual content, but also to other cultural content and services, as well as educational activities and/or entertainment activities for young audiences”. Now the results of this call have been published for consultation.
And more good news to come: a similar call is launched again this year. “The Commission is launching a 1,5M € call for proposals to create innovative cultural hubs around cinema theatres, notably in areas where there is limited cinema and cultural infrastructure and where the Covid-19 crisis has had a strong impact”.
Cinemas with a specific interest in innovative ideas for young audiences should find all information here. Deadline for the call is 7 August 2020.
