BRUSSELS: Eleven European film organisations have released a joint statement in favour of preserving and strengthening the budget for the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme.

The statement points out the discrepancy between the percentage of the workforce (3.8%) and GDP (4.4%) that the cultural and creative sectors represent, as opposed to the percentage of the EU support programme that goes to Creative Europe -- just 0.14%.
