A public conference on the establishment of a film commission in Tunisia is organised today and tomorrow in Gammarth, Tunisia, by the EU-funded programme MED Culture in coordination with several Tunisia ministries.
In the framework of the conference, working groups will discuss several themes: identifying the different steps for the setting-up of a film commission, the financial and institutional conditions, the instruments and regional versus central organisation, as well as existing models of film commissions in the Southern Mediterranean region and in Europe.
This initiative was developed on the basis of a report issued in 2014 by the 3rd phase of the EU-funded programme Euromed Audiovisual.
Med Culture is an EU-funded regional programme with the aim of sustaining the creation of institutional and social environments propitious to culture as a vector for freedom of expression and sustainable development. This should be accomplished by reinforcing the capacities of the public and private cultural sectors as vectors for democratisation, and economic and social development for societies in the Southern Mediterranean.
Med Culture is part of the regional programme “Media and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean” which has been allocated a total budget of €17 million over a four-year period, of which €9 million is for the award of grants on a co-financing basis, and €8 million for one capacity-development mechanism on media (Med Media) and one capacity development mechanism on culture (Med Culture). (EU Neighbourhood Info)
