Creative Europe Desk Czech Republic – MEDIA is the national office of the EU´s Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme. The office was opened in Prague on 2 January, 2003. Based on the resolution of the Ministry of Culture and of the European Commission, the Creative Europe Desk – MEDIA is hosted by the National Film Archive.
The operation of the office is funded by the Ministry of Culture and by the European Commission. Thanks to this, Creative Europe Desk – MEDIA can be as close as possible to those whom it should serve in the first place – Czech audiovisual professionals and organisations.
It is the objective of Creative Europe Desk – MEDIA to ensure that the potential of the programme can be used to the maximum possible extent to develop and support the Czech audiovisual industry.
The main objective of Creative Europe Desk – MEDIA is therefore to provide and actively disseminate information about the financial support available under the MEDIA sub-programme support schemes and to assist all potential programme participants from the Czech Republic in achieving the best possible success when applying for the support.
