Cine-Regio salue l'adoption de la nouvelle "Communication on State aid for films"

Cine-Regio, association faitière des fonds de soutien régionaux, salue l'adoption de la directive «Communication on State aid for films» par la Commission Européenne. Cette directive règle l'application de l'exception culturelle aux règles de territorialisation des dépenses. Auparavant, la directive mentionnait les pays mais pas les régions.
Le vice-président de la Commission Jaoquín Almunia a donné des garanties dans une lettre à Cine-Regio: ”I will make sure that the territorial linking of the aid in the final proposal will be such as to strike the right balance between the European dimension of our cinema industry and the preservation of its more local resources and skills”.
Pour la secrétaire générale de Cine-Regio Charlotte Appelgren cette directive améliore le travail des fonds régionaux: “With this Cinema Communication we have a clear local/regional reference and the new text allows regions to demand a certain amount to be spent on local goods, services and work to be defined by them. Indeed territorialisation has positive effects, particularly as regards the preservation of cultural identities, the creation of a critical mass of audio-visual activities and the solidarity between regions, mainly through the facilitation of co-production projects."
