About AVA



AVA EU (eu.ava.watch) is a pan-European VoD platform that was realised by AVA Library together with and as a part of the European Commission's framework programme for support to the culture and audiovisual sectors "Creative Europe" in the years 2019-20.

The project provided library users across Europe with unlimited access to a variety of festival films, very rarely available on other VoD (video on demand) platforms.

Library users of member libraries in Portugal, Serbia, England, Ireland, Finland and Czechia were able to access film collections curated in cooperation with some of AVA´s European festival partners: Beldocs International Documentary Film Festival (Serbia), Doclisboa International Film Festival (Portugal), Cork International Film Festival (Ireland), Sheffield Doc/Fest (United Kingdom), La Guarimba International Film Festival (Italy).

The colourful collections of films of all types and genres from the diverse international festival programs showcased European audiovisual cultural heritage across the borders. The curated selections gave users the opportunity to learn more about diverse traditions across European Union and beyond, find interesting topics and explore the lives of different communities.

Online access to the curated selection of festival films on eu.ava.watch was entirely free for cardholders of the libraries who participated in the project.

AVA EU project ended on 31st of August 2020.


AVA provides access to a world of European and international cinema from the comfort of your own living room. AVA users can stream a unique selection of arthouse features, world-class documentaries and acclaimed and award-winning short films from a selection of titles not commonly available on other mainstream VOD platforms.

AVA works closely with some of Europe’s most renowned film festivals and distributors to curate a unique viewing experience, focussed on quality content and targeted towards the interests of local library users.
