Canada has co-production agreements with over 50 countries, allowing producers to share the financial burden of their projects, by tapping other countries’ funding bodies and tax incentives, while gaining an international audience.  Since it was established in 1975, the Canada-UK co-production treaty continues to be very popular with producers on both sides of the Atlantic. In this session, producers will learn more about the do’s and don’ts, opportunities and challenges, of establishing a co-production between Canada and the UK.
