Towards sustainable financing models for television production? Challenges for audiovisual policy support in small media markets

Author

Abstract
This paper sets out from a contextual perspective to describe and evaluate the mix or ‘policy toolkits’ available for policymakers to sustain the financing of tv drama production in small countries, and the mechanisms to support a viable television production sector. It questions how and to what existing TV production in small nations is affected by international and national shifts caused by multiplication of distribution platforms and shifts in media consumption, and to what extent these challenges affect existing ecosystems of TV production. Basing on an evaluation of existing financing and supporting mechanisms for media policymakers, the paper analyzes the sustainability of existing support and new instruments media policymakers have for future-proof regulation and support for domestic quality content. Evidence from this paper derives from a large-scale analysis of the Flemish audiovisual sector. The research is based on analysis of policy and sector documents (annual reports, press releases, policy documents, legislation), secondary data retrieved from TV producers and broadcasters and a series of semi-structured expert interviews and roundtable discussions with representatives of media organizations along the broadcasting value chain.
