LETTER OF SUPPORT FOR THE MEDIA PROGRAMME
The Spanish film festivals signing this document wish to express their backing of the MEDIA Programme of the European Union given the possibility that it may suffer cuts in its budget, limits on its initiatives, or amalgamation with other community programmes.

The film festivals wish to underline the important part played by the Media Programme in providing support for the audiovisual industry over these last twenty years in the fields of European film production, distribution and dissemination and express their concern for the loss of its autonomy and specific nature. These measures would represent a serious threat for development of the industrial aspect of the European audiovisual sector. It would also create an obstacle to protecting cultural diversity and creativity in the cinematographies of countries in the European Union.

With this document, the film festivals wish to appeal for preservation of the integrity of the Media Programme and ask that it be given an appropriate budget permitting it to carry out the work it has been doing until now.
