New Audiovisual Coproduction Treaty between Ireland and Canada comes into force today
05 Jul 2016 :
The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys, has today (Tuesday) announced that the new Audiovisual Coproduction Treaty between Ireland and Canada has come into force.

It replaces the 1989 Coproduction Treaty and substantially updates and improves arrangements for feature films, TV dramas and documentaries which are coproduced by Irish and Canadian production companies.

The new Treaty will continue to enable audiovisual works to be recognised as both Irish and Canadian and thus allow film makers to access the various financial supports and benefits in each territory. It also introduces changes to the minimum levels of financial contributions from each coproduction partner and the levels of creative contributions required from each territory. This will facilitate even greater cooperation between production companies in Ireland and Canada in the future.

Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Heather Humphreys said: “This updated Coproduction Treaty is another positive step forward for the Irish film and TV sector. Coproduction is increasingly becoming the norm and treaties such as this one are very important for enabling international film productions. Ireland and Canada already have a strong coproduction tradition, with over 30 feature films and TV dramas produced in the last ten years under the 1989 Treaty. I hope this new updated Treaty will lead to even more coproductions for our audiovisual sector.”

James Hickey CEO of the Irish Film Board said: “The IFB very much welcomes the new Coproduction Treaty with Canada. Ireland has a very valuable and strong film and TV coproduction relationship with Canada. When the new Treaty comes into effect it will provide opportunities for even greater levels of cooperation between the two countries. The signing of the new Treaty is very timely. The Academy Award nominated films ‘Brooklyn and ‘Room’, which were supported by the IFB and Telefilm Canada, were coproduced under the new Treaty’s predecessor. Also the new up and coming animation film 'The Breadwinner' from the Academy Award nominated studio Cartoon Saloon is co-produced with Canada. We now look forward to continuing to strengthen these relationships into the future under the new Treaty.”
