Ireland to Sign Co–Production Agreement with Hungary

Representatives of Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board and the Hungarian Motion Picture Public Foundation are to sign a co–production agreement in Berlin on Sunday February 8 with the aim to foster co–productions between the two territories.

The deal includes a reciprocal feature whereby producers from both countries will take turns acting as majority co–producers.

This agreement would work on the basis that when a co–production in which the majority of the budget comes from the Irish side occurs, this will be followed by a co–production in which the equivalent percentage comes from the Hungarian side.
