LUMIERE VOD: launch of the first directory of European films

LUMIERE VOD was launched yesterday at the Council of Europe by the European Commission. It is a directory of European films available on on-demand services in Europe. 

This new directory of European films will help professionals, the public authorities and citizens to find information about European films and their availability on-line in video-on-demand (VOD) services throughout the European Union.

This project, managed by the European Audiovisual Observatory, is supported by the CREATIVE EUROPE programme of the European Union. 

The database contains information on over 35.000 European films offered 150.000 times on VOD. This data has been taken from 250 different VOD catalogues available in 28 European countries.
