RTVE increases support of local film industry

World Brief

Spanish pubcaster RTVE will hike its commitment to the local film industry next year, according to Juan Menor, director of RTVE’s TV division, TVE.

This year, RTVE will co-finance almost two-thirds of the feature films produced in Spain, earmarking E36.9 million ($46.7 million) for 66 movies. It has already acquired 54 local features, three animated films and seven feature-length docs, Menor said.

Roughly 20% of all movies broadcast by RTVE in 2004 will be Spanish pics, he added, but he wants to up that to 30% in 2005.

The drive into local pics is part of a far larger thrust at RTVE under new director general Carmen Caffarel to strengthen its public service activities.
