    UK-Morocco Co-production Treaty


    International Trade Forum - Issue 3/2009 

    Collaboration between the United Kingdom and Moroccan film-makers is set to increase after the signing of a co-production treaty between the two countries in October 2009. With desert locations and other backdrops unavailable in Europe, Morocco is already a popular setting for many successful British films, but the treaty gives more practical reasons for cooperation between the two countries. Under the treaty, UK film-makers working with Moroccan producers will have access to a range of benefits including tax breaks, sources of funding and support.

    The treaty with Morocco is the eighth of the UK's bilateral co-production treaties. More than 480 films have been produced over the last seven years with the other countries involved - Australia, Canada, France, India, New Zealand, South Africa and Jamaica (see page 40).
