BCM289: Co-production treaties: Successes and Gaps

  • https://www.screenaustralia.gov.au/funding-and-support/co-production-program
  • The co-production program has been put in place to encourage production and foster relationships between international filmmakers. In allowing two or more international producers to come together to make a screen project, it provides them with the opportunities to access the resources required to produce projects that will be internationally competitive. The objective of the program is to foster projects that will be truly international in terms of storytelling, budget ranges and the audiences to which they appeal.
