EuroScreen, a €1.9bn initiative to align the film and tourist industries, has launched its new website.
The site (www.euroscreen.org.uk) will offer news and policy material relating to the three-year project, which is aiming to capitalise on the economic and cultural opportunities presented through screen tourism.
Funded by the INTERREG IVC programme, the initiative encompasses eight regions across Europe: Italy, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
Studio-backed productions such as Skyfall (UK) and Brave (Scotland) as well as TV series such as Wallander (Sweden) are working with tourism agencies this year
The new website will also keep users up-to-date with public events organised by the partnership. These events include seminars and conference where participants can learn about the outcomes of EuroScreen, exchange good practice and research, and share knowledge.
