The Bundesrat shares the Commission’s proposal to maintain the program with an autonomous character. It demands to re-establish the aim of transnational circulation and mobility of art and artist. This is a prerequisite to realize the other three aims of the program. In regards to the importance of digital audio-visual media for European societies, the Bundesrat requests to add children's movies with European evaluation potential to the new MEDIA-subprogram. Article 7 of the proposal includes maximum budget shares to fund the sectors. The Bundesrat is of the opinion that a financial support by minimum budget shares and fixed budget shares is a more efficient way to create an impact and relevance of the program’s actions. Further, the Bundesrat welcomes the provision of financial support by "Creative Europe" through the “InvestEU”-facility but emphasizes the importance of the independence of artists. The cultural sector must not defer for the benefit of economic aspects. The Bundesrat expressly demands support of the program's continued implementation by a committee to ensure a way of participation for the Member States at the program regarding its implementation. The Bundesrat welcomes the aim to create synergies with other programs and politics, but stresses the importance of an equal support so that cultural and creative sectors will not subordinate to other political aims. Further, the Bundesrat requests a revision of indicators in Annex II of the proposal.
