EURIMAGES – EUROPEAN CINEMA SUPPORT FUND
Eurimages is the cultural support fund of the Council of Europe.
Established in 1989, it currently numbers 38 of the 47 member states of the Strasbourg-based Organisation, plus Canada as Associate member.
Eurimages promotes independent filmmaking by providing financial support to feature-length films, animation and documentary films.
In doing so, it encourages co-operation between professionals established in different countries.
Eurimages has a total annual budget of €26 million. This financial envelope derives essentially from the contributions of the member states as well as returns on the loans granted.
