MEPs vote to reverse Creative Europe budget cuts

13 October 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The reformed draft budget will now be put to vote at the European Parliament.

Members of the European Parliament’s Budget Committee voted this morning (Tuesday) to reverse cuts to Creative Europe’s budget for 2016 as proposed by the European Council.

Voting on the motion for resolution concerning the European Commission’s 2016 draft budget, the MEPs passed an amendment tabled by deputy Jean-Paul Denanot, calling for an increase by $12m (€10.5m) for Creative Europe’s Culture and Media sub-programmes, including the multimedia actions and the Cultural and Creative Sectors Guarantee Facility, which is planned to start operating from next year.

According to Denanot, this increase is deemed “necessary” given the programmes’ “important role in supporting cultural and creative industries that represent key European values.”

The MEPs’ budgetary amendments and the accompanying resolution for the 2016 draft budget will now be put to the plenary vote at the European Parliament later this month.
