Following the numerous applications received from film, audiovisual or cultural professionals wishing to take part in the Fund's support decisions, the Executive Committee has decided to suspend the recruitment procedure for independent external experts as of 1 April 2022. The Eurimages team and the Board of Management will continue to study all applications received before this date. We invite you to consult the Eurimages website regularly for the next opening date of the new application cycle.
We thank all those who have expressed their interest in our activities.
The guidelines that can be downloaded in the "documents" section below give a complete overview of the functioning of the external experts: selection, mission, financial and administrative conditions, etc.
The Eurimages Reform and the use of external experts
Following an external evaluation conducted in 2018, the Fund has embarked on an in-depth reform of its governance and decision-making process, as well as a review of its working procedures. This reform affects in particular the co-production support programme, the modalities of which will change from 1 January 2022.
The governance and decision-making arrangements of the Fund will be structured as follows:
The Board of Management (1-2 meetings per year), composed of representatives from each of the Member States, defines the Fund's policy and strategic orientations, decides on the conditions for granting financial support, and adopts and monitors the Fund's budget.
The Executive Committee (3 meetings per year), composed of one third of the national representatives on a rotating basis, is mandated to take decisions on any matter not falling within the remit of the Board of Management, including the adoption of recommendations for financial support developed by the working groups on the different support programmes.
Independent external experts - from the film, audiovisual and cultural industries - are responsible for assessing applications for support and making recommendations for the allocation of financial assistance in accordance with the selection criteria and guidelines defined by the Board of Management. These experts will work within the framework of the co-production support programme but may be called upon for other programmes of the Fund.
