Georgia joins Eurimages

Strasbourg, 27.10.2011 – The Partial Agreement of the Council of Europe Eurimages is pleased to welcome a new member state, Georgia, as of 18 October 2011.

Co-production projects involving a co-producer from Georgia can therefore be submitted to Eurimages for examination at forthcoming meetings.

As Georgia does not have access to the support mechanisms of the EU’s MEDIA Programme, distributors from Georgia can apply for support from Eurimages. Exhibitors from Georgia will also be eligible for Eurimages programmes of support for theatres (exhibition and digital equipment).
