About Creative Europe
Running from 2014-2020 with a budget of €1.46 billion, Creative Europe succeeds two previous funding programmes (MEDIA and Culture) and helps tens of thousands of professionals and organisations in film, TV, games, publishing, music, heritage and the performing and visual arts through the MEDIA sub-programme and the Culture sub-programme.
Each funding scheme has its own set of guidelines and application forms, known as calls for proposals. Calls for proposals are published throughout a year and can have multiple deadlines. To stay up to date with the latest calls and deadlines, check the deadlines page on the Creative Europe Desk UK website and subscribe to the Creative Europe Desk UK MEDIA newsletter.
