Within the framework of the EURIMAGES programme, Europa Cinemas supports cinema exhibition in the member States of the Council of Europe.
This support programme which has been running since 1993, aims at encouraging exchanges, improving the circulation of European films outside their country of origins and increasing their visibility on the screens. It also aims at promoting the programming of films co-produced by Eurimages in the cinema theatres
This action is complementary with the support programme towards cinemas operating within the MEDIA programme of the European Union. It facilitates the integration of the cinemas in these schemes when they join the European Union.
Therefore, only the cinemas located in the EURIMAGES member States, which do not have access to any MEDIA Programme´s support, are eligible for assistance.
At the end of 2012, Europa Cinemas/Eurimages Network includes 42 cinemas totalling 160 screens in 31 cities and 5 countries: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Russia, Serbia and Turkey.
