EURIMAGES - European Cinema Support Fund

 

Digital equipment support for theatres

 

Please note: this support programme will be discontinued as from 1 January 2015.

 

The programme intends to support exhibitors who operate theatres assisted by the Eurimages exhibition support programme (in Albania, "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Georgia). Please note that from 1 January 2014, theatres in Bosnia-Herzegovina are no longer eligible for this support.
Under this programme, a grant, capped at €30 000 per screen and/or 50% of the purchase and installation costs of the digital equipment, would be awarded by Eurimages. This sum shall be used to finance the purchase and installation of digital projectors, servers and other related options. To complete the overall financing, exhibitors must seek any additional funding from their national or local authorities or secure investments from their own equity or private sources.

Following a tender procedure by the Council of Europe, the Belgian company Dcinex (formerly XDC International) has been selected to be the exclusive provider for the implementation of this programme. Special conditions concerning various brands and types of equipment have been negotiated with this company.

Info for producers

  • Following the decision of the Eurimages Board of Management meeting in 2009 to carry out in 2014 a study on the functioning and results of the Fund, the Olsberg SPI company established in the United Kingdom has just published its report which you will find here. As an independent study, the contents of this document do not bind or commit in any way the Council of Europe and the Eurimages Fund. The Fund’s Board of Management will now study the recommendations proposed by the Olsberg SPI company.
