The IMZ International Music + Media Centre, founded under the aegis of UNESCO in 1961 and based in Vienna, is a global association dedicated to the worldwide development, dissemination and promotion of music and dance through the audio-visual media. The professional umbrella organisation and networking platform acts as an interface between leading international producers, distributors, broadcasters of cultural programmes, opera houses, educational institutions and record labels focusing on classical, contemporary and world music, on jazz, and on classical and contemporary dance. The motivation behind the initiative World Music Films On Tour is on the one hand to support world music filmmakers in promoting and distributing their artwork around the planet and on the other hand to make these films available even for small festivals, conferences, and other events having restraint budgets. With the initiative World Music Films On Tour, the IMZ is able to further and follow more intensively its mission to support music and dance in the audio-visual media.
