This discussion and exchange forum – exclusively dedicated to European and non-European (since 2015) public film funders at supranational, national and regional levels – started in 2012 on the initiative of the MEDIA programme. It comprises one yearly Workshops (except in 2012, with two Workshops). Each of them deals with different issues related to the role of the funds and to the financing of projects at different phases from the perspective of a public funder.

Experiences of public film funds with new technologies, their impacts on funding schemes and their responsability towards the industry players and/or the feasibility of projects.

The agenda of the 9th Workshop of Medici is, on one hand, based on the demand of participants to follow up on issues discussed during the 8th workshop and more specifically about blockchain and funds experiences with SVOD/VOD platforms like Netflix, Amazon, iTunes, HBO, and, on the other hand, to talk about formats (what are we talking about, what does it means in terms of financing needs and funding schemes, of distribution requirements, of evaluation criteria and last but not least, do funds have a role to play and actions to take to ensure the sustainability of the industry players or do they have to only take care of the feasibility and quality of projects.
