On 9 September 2020, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted a proposal for the reform of the governance of Eurimages which will enter into force on 1 January 2022 according to the decision of the Fund's Board of Management.
The Board of Management, composed of representatives of each of the Member States, will continue to define the Fund's policy and strategic orientations, decide on the conditions for granting financial support, and adopt and monitor the Fund's budget. The Fund will also have an Executive Committee composed of one third of the national representatives on a rotating basis, capable of taking rapid decisions on the management of the Fund.
The selection of projects will involve the active participation of independent external experts from the film, audiovisual and cultural industries. A call for expression of interest will be launched by Eurimages in the summer of 2021. Detailed information will soon be available on the Eurimages website.
