|Description of call |
"Multilingual audiovisual news content using European media platforms"
|This call aims at funding a project to improve the curation and dissemination of audiovisual news content and informative non-fictional programming, in at least five Union languages, across one or several VOD European platform(s). The platform(s) must allow for the curation and spread of existing content, which requires close cooperation of several media actors who agree to share content amongst themselves and make them available to audiences cross borders. The content should be consistently reachable across as many Union countries as possible. The aim is to increase the variety of audiovisual news, informative content and programming with a pan-European perspective available to citizens, by enhancing cross-border collaboration between news media actors. The content should have a general interest approach, i.e. covering current affairs and topics relevant to the daily lives of European citizens.|
