Euro kudos for ‘Magdalene’

European Media Program's Prize means moolah for Mullan

Peter Mullan’s “The Magdalene Sisters” has received the European Media Program’s Prize for 2003, including a $30,000 check for the director.

The well-traveled pic has been released in 12 European countries.

The prize was announced during a dinner to close the Cannes Film Festival’s first Europe Day, initiated by European Culture Commissioner Viviane Reding and attended by culture ministers from around Europe.

The ministers also issued a joint statement reiterating their support for national cinema and broadcasting subsidies.

“European countries have committed themselves strongly to promote their creative industries by putting in place film support funds and mechanisms,” the statement read.

“These support measures do not have the purpose of creating dominant positions for national films on national markets. On the contrary, they have helped to encourage and strengthen cooperation in the film sector between member states by allowing access between systems through a policy of bilateral agreements and the setting up of multilateral funds. Culture ministers intend to retain their capacity to support film and creativity.
