Founded in 1992 with funding from the MEDIA programme and from the Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC), Europa Cinemas is the first film theatre network focusing on European films.
Its objective is to provide operational and financial support to cinemas that commit themselves to screen a significant number of European non-national films, to offer events and initiatives as well as promotional activities targeted at Young Audiences.
Thanks to the support of Eurimages and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the influence of Europa Cinemas extends to Eastern European countries, to the Balkans and to Turkey.
Europa Cinemas also supports exhibition and distribution of European films in Asia, Latin America and the southern Mediterranean countries within the scope of Europa Cinemas Mundus.
