Eurimages is a cultural support fund established in 1989 within the framework of the Council of Europe with 38 member states. Eurimages promotes the European audiovisual industry by providing financial support to European cinematographic works. In doing so, it encourages cooperation between professionals established in different European countries. Eurimages has three support schemes: coproduction, theatrical distribution and exhibition. A main condition for obtaining Eurimages support is the project to be an international coproduction between at least two member states. Every coproducer has to have at least 50 per cent of the financing in place. Even with this requirement the number of projects submitted for funding has increased sharply over the last years. As globalization and digital era necessitate changes, the course of future development of Eurimages is going towards opening to edgier movies and expanding beyond European borders. In 2017 Canada has become the first non-European country to accede to the Council of Europe's cultural fund Eurimages, as an associate member. The 39th member state is Montenegro
Bulgaria has been a member of Eurimages since 1993. This country has signed the European Convention of Cinematographic Coproduction in 2003 and the revised Council of Europe Convention on Cinematographic Coproduction. Bulgaria has bilateral coproduction agreements with France, Italy, Canada, Russia, Turkey and Israel.
