Panel 2: Networking for more audiences

Europa Cinemas is an example of support to a European network that has worked successfully. The Europa Cinemas network was created thanks to the support of MEDIA with the aim of making European works available across borders at a time when demand for such works was not necessarily there. What have we learnt from Europa Cinemas and how can we use this example to create other European networks of collaboration that promote European works and increase audiences?
