Other sources of information.

The European Audiovisual Observatory maintains an online database of public funds for TV, film and other visual media called Korda, which is probably the best of its kind and is in French and German as well as English.

By far the best database covers French funds. The Guide is run by APCVL, part of the Centre regional government. If you are French, you probably know about it already. It is also worth checking out if you are contemplating a co-production with France or doing part of your production there.

UK-based site Film File Europe, set up by the UK Film Council, is a nice-looking site with some good information about funding and a lot more information about specific films and distributors.
