Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 
Creative Europe is the European Commission's flagship programme for support to the culture and audiovisual sectors. The Creative Europe programme 2021-2027 invests in actions that reinforce cultural diversity and respond to the needs and challenges of the cultural and creative sectors. The programme is structured around three strands: - The CULTURE strand covers cultural and creative sector initiatives such as those promoting cross-border cooperation, platforms, networking, and literary translations. - The MEDIA strand supports and promotes Europe's audiovisual sector. - The CROSS-SECTORAL strand aims at exploiting the potential for collaboration between different the two sectors, as well as addressing the common challenges they face. The Programme is complementary to actions at national level in the field of culture and the audiovisual sector, reflecting the policy priorities the EU is following in the cultural and creative field. Creative Europe is open to cultural and creative organisations from EU Member States, as well as, under certain conditions, to some non-EU Member States. Participation in the MEDIA programme is subject to alignment with Directive 2010/13/EU, as amended by Directive (EU) 2018/1808 (Audiovisual Media Services Directive – AVMSD).
