Euromed aims to recruit lobby group of distribs
Euromed Audiovisual, the film unit of the EU program that supports dialogue between cultures in the Mediterranean basin, is launching an initiative to boost distribution.
“We want to create a network of distributors in the region to lobby for incentives, but also to exchange information and experience in a rapidly changing sector,” said Euromed team leader Valerio Caruso.
He added that the goal is also to lobby for the EU to start a distribution fund for the area.
Distributors that Euromed assembled at the Venice Film Market to get the ball rolling on the initiative included Algerian distributor Hachemi Zertal, Egyptian distributor Marianne Khouri and her Moroccan colleague Imane Masbahi.
