Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
The video film which was posted on the European Commission's LinkedIn account in September 2019 to advertise the EU MEDIA Program investments in European film, the tag-line of which was "Let's come together!" and which contained clips of people engaging in sexual intercourse.
It has subsequently been taken down from the EU Commission LinkedIn website and I can now not trace it anywhere on the internet.

Dear Ms Andersdotter,
On 29.09.2019 we posted a social media post on the European Commission’s
LinkedIn page, which featured a video that is also available on the
European Commission’s audiovisual portal
https://audiovisual.ec.europa.eu/en/vide... and on its Youtube
This was to promote the MEDIA sub-programme of Creative Europe, which
supports the EU film and audio-visual industries financially in the
development, distribution and promotion of their work. The MEDIA
sub-programme of Creative Europe helps to launch projects with a European
dimension and nurtures new technologies, enabling European films and
audiovisual works including feature films, television drama, documentaries
and new media to find markets beyond national and European borders. You
will find more information about the MEDIA sub-programme of Creative
Europe here: https://eacea.ec.europa.eu/creative-euro...
The European Commission also uses its LinkedIn account to promote other EU
programmes, such as Erasmus+, Horizon2020, and DiscoverEU.
