As part of an initiative funded last year under the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the European Commission is gathering proposals for organising a series of at least 5 screenings between May–September this year.
The main event specifications are as follows:
1. The screening must take place in a culturally important location.
- The venue could be a cultural institution or heritage site which already hosts screening events (so that they have all the equipment and experience with handling them). The screenings could take place indoors or in an open air location.
- The institution managing the venue should be willing to take the bulk of responsibility for the event (in collaboration with the local film heritage institution, the Creative Europe MEDIA desks, and the contractor of the European Commission).
2. The screening may take place during local celebrations, especially linked to heritage (eg. the 100th anniversary etc.).
- The screening may be followed or opened by a networking cocktail, and/or discussion with a film/cultural historian (depending on the context). Of course, the bigger the outreach and audience of the screening, the better.
3. The heritage film to be screened has to be a non-national European film.
- It will be a film of your choice as your knowledge of the audience’s preferences will be relied on.
Proposals for different venues and concepts for these events are now being gathered.
Concrete suggestions of possible venues, possible dates and a rough estimation of costs are needed.
Please send questions and proposals directly to Ms Irina Sofletea (Irina.SOFLETEA@ec.europa.eu).
Deadline for sending in proposals is 20 March 2019.
