Supported since its creation by the European Commission (Creative Europe / MEDIA Programme) and by the CNC (France), Europa Cinemas is the first network of cinemas focusing on European films. Created in 1992 at the initiative of a group of thirty cinema exhibitors, it has become in 30 years a network of almost 1,221 cinemas and 3,060 screens in 38 countries.

Its main objectives are to provide operational and financial support to cinemas that undertake to give a significant part of their screenings to non-national European films and to put in place activities for young audiences.
