Press Release from CARTOON and the Annecy Festival
The European Commission under President Barroso's presidency is considering ending the MEDIA Programme. This decision could have disastrous consequences on the European audiovisual sector, which benefits from numerous funds and actions led by this programme. Many associations have already taken action.
On behalf of the European animation industry, CARTOON and the Annecy festival / MIFA have launched a petition to stop the proposed abolition or reduction:
We need signatures from all audiovisual professionals, including producers, directors and studios.
Please sign the petition as soon as possible: we must act fast since the Commission will make its decision mid-March.
