General Secretary Charlotte Appelgren stated, “CineRegio and its members' work for cultural diversity and having so many films selected in Cannes 2019 reflects the importance of regional film funds for the European audio-visual sector and highlights the significant financial contribution and role of the regional film agencies in creating and defending European cultural diversity and the European Co-production model. Regional film funding has proven crucial to upheld and stimulate co-operation within Europe. From our perspective, the European co-production model is the key to cultural diversity, however, the challenge throughout the year, is the interpretation and monitoring of EU state aid rules for film production, where film is compared to washing machines, airports and roads, and hence, put selective film funding schemes defending cultural diversity at risk. This despite 'the cultural exception'. Therefore - let us here at the Cannes Film Festival, the crown jewel of cultural diversity - remind the European institutions to respect 'the cultural exception' and why 'this right' was created in the first place. In these times where cultural diversity and open society is under pressure in many member states, the European Institutions jointly have an obligation to defend the European co-production model."
