Supported by consortia of international, regional and national organisations active in the promotion of cultural and creative industries, the ACP-EU Culture regional hubs publish calls for projects at least once a year in the different cultural and creative sectors.

support to audiovisual coproduction

The ACP-EU Culture Programme has set up an innovative mechanism to support audiovisual co-production in ACP countries that complements the financing provided by existing co-production funds by facilitating their access to operators.

This approach aims to support the competitiveness of the audiovisual sector in ACP countries, notably by improving the conditions for the creation and production of audiovisual works, capacity building of audiovisual sector actors, as well as the circulation of ACP works on the various national and international markets.



Implemented by the Organisation of the ACP States and funded by the European Union, the « ACP-EU towards a viable cultural industry » programme (ACP-EU CULTURE) intends to boost the potential of the cultural and creative sector and its contribution to the social and economic development of the ACP countries.
