CICAE in Cannes – New negotiations on the single digital market
The plans of the European Commission regarding the single digital market have been at the heart of the consultations between the CICAE and Silvia Costa on May 16th in Cannes.
During the meeting with President Detlef Rossmann and Vice-President Christian Bräuer, the member of the European Parliament and President of the Commitee on Culture and Education (CULT) stressed the crucial role of cinema theatres in the diffusion of the European film. Their central role in the circulation of the European film shall remain unchanged in spite of opening up to new digital distribution channels.
Christian Bräuer and Detlef Rossmann emphasised the market share of European films in arthouse cinemas’ programmes.
The CICAE wishes to thank Silvia Costa for her dedication in the negotiations between the Parliament and the Commission. Further consultations with Silvia Costa are planed soon.
