Canada and Spain Renew Commitment to Co-Productions – 2006/10/11

Canada ’s new Government signed amendments last October 10 to the Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the Kingdom of Spain concerning cinematographic relations. The new agreement will support expanding cultural relations with Spain and provide Canadian and Spanish producers with enhanced opportunities for collaboration in both film and television.

On the occasion, minister of Canadian heritage Beverley J. Oda declared that Canada’s new Government was pleased to strengthen the audiovisual industries in both Canada and its partnering countries with co-production agreements, adding that these agreements reinforce international alliances in the cultural sector and promote Canadian culture abroad. Over the last 10 years, Canada has been involved in more than 800 co-production projects, resulting in many successful feature films, such as the award-winning Barbarian Invasions (Canada/France), Being Julia (Canada/UK/Hungary) and Kamataki (Canada/Japan).
