"We, the European professionals of animation film for television and cinema, are extremely concerned by the disastrous consequences on the economic and cultural level, which the calling into question of the MEDIA Programme will give rise to in our sector....We categorically refuse the proposed abolition of the MEDIA Programme with its succession of disastrous consequences in the medium and long term, or any other form of administrative curtailment, namely the inclusion of the current MEDIA Programme within another of the Commission’s programmes."
