Given the difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic in many areas of production, the Board of Management of Eurimages unanimously decided to extend the validity of its support decisions for all co-production projects supported during 2020.  Instead of 12 months, the Fund’s support offers will now remain valid for 20 months from the date of the decision by the Board of Management. Lastly, the institution agreed to award a total amount of €670,698 to 72 cinemas based on their 2019 programming.
