production and distribution);
– targeted funding for young film-makers and individual film-makers via scholarships,
special programmes and prizes;
– sponsorship for film culture and related institutions such as film festivals, repertory
cinemas and film archives;

Creative Europe / EU and Eurimages / European Council);
– cooperation in the form of film-making agreements;
– audiovisual affairs in the context of WTO and GATS, as well as
– the maintenance of Austria’s film heritage.
