Mission and goals
ZINEUSKADI is a non-profit association whose founding members are the Basque Government’s Department of Culture and Language Policy and the two Basque producers’ associations: IBAIA and EPE-APV. Since 2014, its members have also included Euskal Irrati Telebista (EITB), the San Sebastian Film Festival, the Basque Film Archive Foundation and EZAE.
Its main objective is to strategically promote the Basque audiovisual sector and, therefore, support its businesses and professionals in order to aid their development and expansion at a national, European and international level.
Additionally, it promotes the creation of national and international professional networks, defending diversity and European audiovisual heritage, with particular focus on productions with weaker commercial potential and in non-hegemonic languages.
