FILM CO-PRODUCTION AGREEMENTS BETWEEN
THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA AND THE GOVERNMENT OF IRELAND and
BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF IRELAND AND THE GOVERNMENT OF AUSTRALIA


The Government of Ireland has signed co-production agreements with both the Government of Canada and the Government of Australia.

The Irish Government considered that films; capable of enhancing the prestige of the film industries of both countries; and that both the film industries would benefit from closer mutual co-operation in the co-production of films, have decided that such films should benefit from the provision of co-production agreements.

It was considered desirable that a framework be established in the field of film and video productions for co-productions that can contribute to the further expansion of the film and video production industries both between Ireland and Canada and between Ireland and Australia.

An agreement was signed with the Government of Canada in 1989 and with Australia in 1998. It is believed that as well as the development of cultural and economic exchanges these agreements will also will contribute to the enhancement of the relations between the countries involved.

For the purposes of these Agreement, the word "co-production", refers to projects irrespective of length or format including animation and documentaries, produced either on film, videotape or videodisc, for distribution in theatres, on television, videocassette, videodisc or any other form of distribution.

These co-productions are considered to be national productions by and in each of the two countries. Both parties use their best efforts to ensure that the co-producers enjoy, insofar as it is possible, whatever benefits result from the legislation and regulations concerning the film and video industries which are in force or from those which may be decreed in each country.

An overriding aim of these Agreements is to ensure that an overall balance is achieved as regards;

(a) the contribution of the nationals of each Party to the production costs of all films;

(b) the usage of studios and laboratories of the two Parties;

(c) the employment of nationals of the two Parties as creative, craft an technical personnel, measured on a straight head count basis; and

(d) the participation of nationals of the two Parties in each of the major creative, craft and technical categories and, in particular, that of the writer, director and lead cast.
