Toronto Festival: Canada Strikes Co-Production Treaty With Booming New Zealand

11 September 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Canada and New Zealand today signed a co-production treaty that will allow enhanced film and TV industry cooperation between the two English-speaking territories.

The pact comes at a time when New Zealand’s film productions are having an outstanding year at the local box office and abroad.

The treaty was signed on the margins of the Toronto Film Festival at a ceremony held at the city’s Campbell House Museum. Signatories were Melanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, and New Zealand’s High Commissioner in Canada Daniel Mellsop.

Co-production treaties typically enable joint productions to have two passports and be considered as local in both countries. That can open up local distribution systems and enable access to subsidy systems.

Both New Zealand and Canada have used bilateral treaties and well-funded subsidy programs to grow their screen production industries and punch far above their weight if measured on population or Gdp terms. »
