Now the media programme, which has helped shows like Grizzly become world wide successes, is under threat. Please read the following and support Cartoon.
VERY IMPORTANT: Petition to save the MEDIA Programme
The MEDIA Programme is in real danger.
The European Commission under President Barroso's leadership is considering ending the MEDIA Programme! This decision could have disastrous consequences on the European audiovisual sector, which benefits from numerous funds and actions led by this programme.
In the name of the European animation industry, we have launched a petition to stop the proposed abolition:
We need signatures from all audiovisual professionals, including broadcasters, investors and distributors.
Please sign the petition as soon as possible: we must act fast since the Commission will make its decision mid-March.
We would be grateful if you could forward this petition to the largest number of people.
We need your support! Thank you for your help.
