Government of the Republic of South Africa and the government of Ireland have joined forces to co-produce films.
The agreement which was finalized and signed at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival states that the two parties are:
“Seeking to enhance cooperation between their two countries in the area of film; Desirous of expanding and facilitating the co-production of films which may be conducive to the film industries of both countries and to the development of their cultural and economic exchanges; Convinced that these exchanges will contribute to the enhancement of relations between the two countries”
This agreement is being facilitated through the South African National Film and Video Foundation and Irelands Irish Film Board. They are currently seeking submissions for films to be produced.
