Distribution Automatic Support 2015 – Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency
Supporting theatrical distribution through transnational marketing, branding, distribution and exhibition of audio visual works.
The Cinema Automatic Scheme works in two phases:
1. The generation of a potential fund, proportional to the number of paying admission tickets sold during the reference period (2014) for non-national European films in countries participating in the MEDIA Sub-programme, up to a fixed ceiling per film and adjusted for each country.
2. Reinvestment: the potential fund thus generated by each company must be reinvested in:
Module 1. the co-production of eligible non-national European films;
Module 2. the acquisition of distribution rights, for example by means of minimum guarantees, of eligible non-national European films; and/ or in
Module 3. editing costs (prints, dubbing and subtitling), promotion costs and publicity costs for eligible non-national European films.
Generation: 30 April 2015
Reinvestments: within the deadline set out for each module and by 02 August 2016.
