A common European approach to the main audiovisual policy issues is essential to consolidate the European audiovisual single market.  

Supporting the audiovisual industry

The aim of the policy support cluster is to promote a holistic European audiovisual policy through:

  • regulatory dialogue
  • sharing of analysis and data
  • forward-looking intelligence on trends
  • consultation with stakeholders
  • promotion and outreach activities

Specific supporting actions and their goals

Data intelligence

Through this cluster Creative Europe finances studies on future trends of the audiovisual ecosystem in close cooperation with the European Audiovisual Observatory and the European Regulators Group for Audiovisual Media Services.

The support to European Prizes such as the European Film Award and Lux Audience Award of the European Parliament, and to film heritage aims to showcase the current and past European gems to the wide audiences across borders.
