Debate - Preparing Romania's position for the European audiovisual reform

May, 8th, Talent Garden (Ion Brezoianu Street, no. 23-25), 11:00

The European audiovisual policy is about to fundamentally change, to be able to provide a fairer environment for all the stakeholders (producers, distributors, users), in order to promote European film and to change the paradigm of online content consumption.

Romania will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the first half of 2019, when the reform of the audiovisual policy will get to its final stage. To prepare Romania's position in terms of managing the reform process, it is essential to have an informed dialogue between the various Romanian and international institutions that contribute to the audiovisual field or whose activity is affected by it.

This debate provides the framework in which opinions can be crystallized, alliances and working partnerships can be formed and action lines can be established. At the debate Samuel Young, General Secretary of EFADs - the Association of National Film Agencies in Europe will be present.
