Eurimages: Co-production Support
EURIMAGES supports fiction, animation and documentary feature films of a minimum length of 70 minutes.
Eurimages' support aims to promote co-productions between our member states.
There are three calls for projects per year. Deadlines can be consulted here. The Secretariat applies the eligibility criteria contained in the regulations and reports to the Board of Management. Projects declared eligible by the Secretariat are then evaluated by the Board of Management, which avails itself of the artistic expertise of independent professional script readers. In taking its decisions on the support it grants, the Board of Management applies selection criteria contained in the regulations.
Eurimages support takes the form of soft loans or subsidies (co-production support) or subsidies (promotion of co-production and exhibition). Soft loans are repaid on the basis of revenues generated by the projects supported.
All projects submitted must have at least two co-producers from different member states of the Fund. For multilateral co-productions the participation of the majority co-producer must not exceed 70% of the total co-production budget and the participation of the minority co-producers must not be lower than 10%. For bilateral co-productions the participation of the majority co-producer must not exceed 80% of the total co-production budget and the participation of the minority co-producer must not be lower than 20%. For bilateral co-productions with a budget above €5 million, a majority participation of 90% of the total co-production budget is allowed. In the case of projects falling under the Council of Europe Convention on Cinematographic Co-production (revised), the co-production contributions set out in that Convention shall be applied.
