Greece & France Sign Revised Film Co-Production Agreement

CANNES – Greece and France signed an agreement for the joint production of films, on the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival, it was reported on Saturday.

It was signed by Deputy Minister of Culture & Sports for Contemporary Cultural Issues, Nikolas Giatromanolakis in Cannes. This fresh agreement is a revised version of the 1973 agreement between the two countries. It aims to strengthen Greek filmmaking in the competitive European environment, while actively supporting the film works of fiction, documentaries and animation, it was noted in an announcement.

The agreement facilitates the participation of Greek producers in Greek-French co-productions since the minimum contribution rate from the co-producers in-contract drops to 10% and the maximum rises to 90%.

Additionally, it facilitates the extroversion of Greek producers and artists as it strengthens their cooperation with the French film industry, the largest in Europe, it was added.

Similar agreements with other countries will soon follow, noted Giatromanolakis, while culture minister Mendoni said that agreements like this “contribute decisively to the extroversion of Greek contemporary creations and to the promotion of the work of Greek creators.”

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
