Indian / Canadian co-production agreement signed


India and Canada have signed an audio-visual co-production agreement following talks which commenced in 2010. 

The new arrangements will enable filmmakers to access government subsidies and tax incentives in both countries.  Additionally, co-productions will be classed as national films and be eligible for India’s National Film Awards and the Indian Panorama section of the International Film Festival of India.

It is hoped that the agreement will increase appetite for India as a filming location for foreign productions and lead to a growth in exports of Indian films to Canada.
