The first Directory of European Films available on Video on Demand “Lumière VOD” will be launched by Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland and European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel. European Audiovisual Observatory Director Susanne Nikoltchev will moderate the event.
The database, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and created by the Observatory, aims at promoting transparency in the VOD sector. This new tool is freely accessible to writers, producers, distributors, VOD services, film agencies, funding bodies, public authorities, festivals and the film-going public. Other speakers include Silvia Costa, Member of the European Parliament, Rapporteur for the future Creative Europe Programme and Radu Mihaileanu, Film Director and President of ARP.
