Film New Europe wins EU support for 2009


    Film New Europe is proud to announce that it has been awarded a grant of 68,000 Euros from the MEDIA Programme of the European Union for 2009 to continue its promotion and further access to markets for the audiovisual industries of the 12 new EU member countries. This is the second year that the EU has supported FNE, and we feel that the grant is also an endorsement of the important role FNE has come to play in the European film and television industry.

    We would like to thank all our sponsors and supporters in 2008; the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, the Polish Film Institute, the Polish Filmmakers Association and the Slovenian Film Institute. We would also like to thank all the members of the Film New Europe Association and our own FNE correspondents throughout the region who have made FNE the premier source for news and information about the Central European film and television industry since its official launch just over a year ago.

    This will be the final edition of FNE daily for 2008. We will resume publishing again on Monday 12 January 2009.

    Happy Holidays from all the team at FNE ! !
