The funds are intended to finance additional measures to supplement the advertising campaigns of theatrical releases already planned by the foreign distributors. The support, of a maximum of €50,000, is granted in the form of a conditionally repayable loan. Funding of up to €10,000 can also be allocated as a grant.
