17th Conference and 16th General Assembly of COPEAM
Paris, 8 - 11 April 2010
"The Mediterranean Audiovisual Stake”
The 17th Annual Conference of COPEAM, organized in collaboration with INA (National Audiovisual Institute) and under the High Patronage of Mr. Nicolas Sarkozy, President of the French Republic, was focused on the theme "The Mediterranean Audiovisual Stake”. A stake embodied in a series of concrete and ambitious projects aiming at drawing the Mediterranean audiovisual landscape.
This edition was an opportunity to assess the development of the 10 projects adopted by the General Assembly of Cairo, in 2009, which gained the consensus of the professionals of both the Mediterranean sides, as well as to rise a debate regarding current topics of international interest such as sports rights and public access to major sport events.
Finally, a "Call" was launched to support the creation of a Mediterranean television channel, multicultural and multilingual, broadcasting via satellite throughout the whole basin and counting on the contributions of all the countries from both the Southern and Northern shores.
