EuroScreen, a three-year €1.9 million ($2.5 million) cross-European film tourism initiative, launched its website Tuesday.

The two-year project, funded by EU and Interregional Cooperation Program, has been created to improve connections between the production sector and tourism in the U.K., Spain, Italy, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and Sweden.
