Eurimages is the Council of Europe fund for the production and distribution of cinematographic works made in European co-production. Hungary takes an active part in the work of the organisation.
Hungary joined Eurimages in 1990, and has since then supported the production of more than 100 coproductions with a Hungarian participation, and the Hungarian distribution of numerous European films.
In the governing body of Eurimages, every member state can delegate a member. Together, they determine the directives of the organisation, the conditions of the grants, and decide – based on recommendations by independent experts and professional committees – about the applications to be supported. The funds of Eurimages originate from the membership dues (approx. 90%) contributed by each country – including, naturally, Hungary –, and the repayment of the granted loans (approx. 10%).
The working languages of Eurimage are English and French. Applications are accepted written in these languages. All important information on the guidelines and support system of the fund can be found at its central website: www.coe.int/eurimages
