Creative Europe MEDIA supports quality TV content such as The Bridge and Last Panthers. The next European Film Forum takes place at the global TV market at MIPCOM in Cannes on 18 October 2017. The EFF will look at ways in which the MEDIA programme can continue support for the TV sector in a changing landscape.
TV content is thriving with high levels of creativity and quality, expanding international audiences, and production costs that match and sometimes surpass those of cinema. Yet digital natives have different expectations and new formats are emerging such as web-series, mobile first content, and interactive content where TV and online content are combined. Broadcasters remain crucial for production but global Video-On-Demand players are also investing in content.
Against this background, how should the future MEDIA programme pursue its goals of increasing cross-border circulation in Europe and reaching audiences? This edition of European Film Forum will discuss these questions from the perspective of TV support. A panel discussion will address key issues of the European TV industry, such as financing, connecting content and audiences.
We will publish the schedule when it is confirmed closer to the date.
