Audiovisual projects on environment

DEADLINE: 13 September 2013

The objective of this call for proposals is to select a proposal to raise awareness of the EU citizens about sustainable development, biodiversity and nature issues by providing financial support to the production of a high quality movie on those subjects for a commercial distribution in cinemas for European audiences, presented by European production companies.
Biodiversity loss and the degradation of nature in the Union have important implications for the environment and are costly for society as a whole, particularly for economic actors in sectors that depend directly on ecosystem services. Biodiversity and nature is vital to countless human activities. Much food production is only possible because of natural benefits like fertile soil and water, and bees that pollinate plants and trees.
To that end, the proposed movie subject should relate closely to the thematic priority objective of the Commission’s proposal for a new Environment Action Programme for 2020 “Living well, within the limits of our planet"2 intended to: "Protect, conserve and enhance the Union’s natural capital".
The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the awarded project is estimated at 1.500.000 EUR.
Who can apply? Public or private entities whose main activity is audio-visual production and their Partners. Applicants may act individually or with partner organisations and/or associates.
