THE EUROPEAN UNION RECOGNISES GIJÓN FILM FESTIVAL FOR THE QUALITY OF THE ACTIVITIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, ITS IMPACT IN TERMS OF AUDIENCE AND THE SUPPORT PROVIDED TO YOUNG FILMMAKERS.
The prestigious MEDIA programme, which belongs to Creative Europe, is backing again the Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival project for this year 2019. This support is the most important for Festivals at European level, and their criteria are based on principles such as the diffusion of quality European productions, year-round programming or the implementation of audiovisual literacy actions.

A total of 35 European audiovisual festivals (out of 98 applications received) were supported by MEDIA for a total amount of €1 616 000. The quality and consistency of the activities; the development of strategies to reach new audiences; and the educational actions throughout the year are some of the aspects most valued by the European Commission, which also attaches great importance to networking actions with other Festivals. At this point, the FICX has several initiatives running both at national (i.e. "Crossroads", the collaboration with the San Sebastian Festival, which will continue in 2019) and international (with proposals such as the exhibition of Asturian cinema that will host the Toulouse Festival this October) levels.

In addition, the European Commission also recognises the geographic diversity of the programme, the support for the commercial and alternative circulation of European cinema, the commitment to European creators (particularly young people), and the relevance of the organisational team.
