UMW presents: European Digital Talents

press release

Founded in 2010, Under The Milky Way works with a large number of VoD Platforms and was awarded the global iTunes preferred aggregator status in 2011. The company is fully operational on more than 100 territories and serves all kinds of rights-holders (producers, distributors, sales agents) out of 13 regional offices in Europe, North America and Asia.

Based on their experience after having distributed more than 5,000 films, UMW sees the emergence of a new type of film, which increasingly transgresses the codes of traditional production.  These digital native films must be promoted as such to meet their audience. It is in this context that UMW offers a new international exclusively digital distribution package to producers, selected in the frame of the Call for Proposals on Promotion of European Audiovisual Works Online (Creative Europe).

The project called European Digital Talents, aims to support the international digital distribution of 6 films for the year 2021. This therefore includes :

  • International digital distribution on the main global VOD platforms
  • Tailor-made marketing strategies
  • Up to 5 subtitles financed
  • 100% of the encoding costs financed
  • Quarterly financial reports
  • Producers’ Workshop at Cannes 2021 to share results and insights on VOD business models

A few slots remain available for 2021. Therefore UMW is looking for films matching the following criteria : 

  • European films
  • Completed or almost completed
  • Worldwide rights available
  • Adapted for digital native audiences

If you are interested and think your film can represent a genuine European Digital Talent, 

please contact for more information Muriel Joly:
