We would like to remind you that we are launching a new ACM Distribution call for proposals.
The deadline to apply is February 28th, 2018.
This scheme is designed to support distribution for international co-productions, and was initially open to films that were supported by the Aide aux cinemas du monde at production stage. Starting from this call for projects, that last condition disappears.
ACM Distribution will now be open to all co-productions between a MEDIA and a non-MEDIA country respecting the % rules: The MEDIA co-producer's financial contribution must be included between 25% and 70% for fiction and animation feature films, and between 20% and 70% for documentaries.
Please find the guidelines attached.
4 selection committees have already taken place since the fund was launched – which enabled 24 films to be distributed in over 100 extra countries (total number of releases).
Candidates can be international sales agents, producers, distributors… any French or European company (established in a MEDIA country), rights-holder of an eligible film, is welcome to apply. Please note that a distribution strategy must be presented on at least 3 territories (any country except France) to receive support.
