At the end of 2022, the programme was enhanced to open its pathway to university and extracurricular audiences via dedicated access for higher education students and cultural mediators enabling them to organise screenings, and also added a ninth language, Croatian, to its multilingual offering. 

The programme, piloted by the Institut français with its partners Arte Education and European Schoolnet, is supported by the MEDIA programme of the Europe Creative Agency. 

More than 15,000 users from the 39 MEDIA countries are registered on the platform

Look out for new films to be added to the catalogue in spring 2023!
