UNIC also stresses the need to combat film theft, asserting their detrimental impact on the industry's growth . The manifesto positions cinemas as cultural hubs, fostering community, economic growth, and innovation. It urges support from policymakers to protect and celebrate the essence and diversity of European cinema and ensure that audiences can continue to enjoy films on the Big Screen.
