EFAD Publishes Overview of COVID-19 Support Measures per Country
The association of European Film Agency Directors (EFAD) has recently published an extensive overview of COVID-19 measures that have been taken in each country. The list includes current activities of film organisations aiming to mitigate the consequences of COVD-19 as well as direct links offering information on what measures and schemes have been introduced in a particular country in order to support film professionals.
Over the past weeks and months, it became obvious that the Coronavirus outbreak has greatly affected a majority of the players operating in the audio-visual sector. For many, the consequences of COVID-19 have become a considerable threat, to the extent that they cannot sustain their work in the film industry without the help of suitable financial support schemes.
According to a recent press release by EFAD, the national film and audio-visual funds across Europe are already fully mobilised to take all necessary measures to mitigate the negative consequences for everybody working in the sector. An overview of measures taken by national film organisations can be found at the link below:
Members of EFAD are film agencies, film institutes and film funds operating in the following 34 countries: Austria, Belgium (Flemish and French speaking part), Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom.
