Co-productions are a key component of Canadian film and television production. BC production companies are very active in co-productions, which enable them to penetrate new markets and attract additional project financing. Canada has co-production treaties with over 50 countries which are administered by Telefilm Canada on behalf of the Canadian government.
The official co-production agreements enable Canadian producers and their foreign counterparts to pool their creative, artistic, technical and financial resources to co-produce films and television programs that enjoy the status of national productions in each of the countries concerned.
