TERRAMED Plus: Promoting Mediterranean diversity through audiovisual production


TERRAMED Plus, an international cooperation project between public broadcasters of the Mediterranean area co-financed by the European Union through the Euromed Audiovisual III Programme, is to launch its website at the next COPEAM Conference in Marrakech from March 29 to April 1.
The project's weekly showcase promoting documentaries, films, television series, fictions and animated films portraying the Mediterranean, produced by its six television partners (RAI/Italy, ARTE France, EPTV/Algeria, France Télévisions, RTVE/Spain and SNRT/Morocco) will be available online. The showcase has been broadcast weekly since November 2011 on the satellite channel RaiMed/RaiNews.
TERRAMED Plus, launched in March 2011, also intends to set up a video-on-demand (VoD) platform where 115 hours of audiovisual products from the television partners will be available in streaming and for free. This video library will be subtitled into French, English, and Arabic, and mark a concrete step toward closer collaboration between Euro-Mediterranean broadcasters. Each video is complemented by information about the topic, director, producer, and actors, and is indexed by language, broadcaster, genre, country, and theme.
TERRAMED Plus is an innovative cooperation project to show what the Mediterranean region is capable of, in terms of content richness and cultural diversity, an audiovisual bridge for concrete intercultural dialogue,” said Alessandra Paradisi, Secretary General of COPEAM, the project’s partner in charge of international coordination. COPEAM is the Permanent Conference of Mediterranean Audiovisual Operators.
The Euromed Audiovisual III programme aims to contribute to the development and strengthening of the capacity of the film sector in the ENPI South region (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Syria, Tunisia) and to contribute significantly to mutual understanding, intercultural dialogue and cultural diversity, in line with the Strategy for the Development of Euro-Mediterranean Audiovisual Cooperation, approved by Euromed culture ministers in Athens in May 2008.
