UK, China ratify co-production treaty


- All eligible co-productions will be able for exhibition in China

UK, China ratify co-production treaty

A landmark film coproduction between the UK and China treaty that was inked in 2014 has now been ratified at the UK Government’s GREAT Festival of Creativity in Shanghai. The deal, which was negotiated for the UK by the British Film Institute and China’s Film Bureau and China Film Co-production Corporation, with support from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and UK Trade & Investment in Beijing, will allow qualifying co-productions to access national benefits including sources of finance and an easier distribution route to audiences. In the UK this includes the Film Tax Relief and the BFI Film Fund. Eligible co-productions will be able to be shown in China. Currently China permits only 34 non-domestic titles to be shown in Chinese cinemas each year. Now, many more British films will be shown to Chinese audiences than current restrictions allow.

UK Culture Secretary Sajid Javid said, “This treaty is a breakthrough for UK and Chinese production companies. It will pave the way for UK producers and their Chinese counterparts to share their creative expertise and make incredible films that will be enjoyed around the world.” 

Miao Xiaotian, President of the China Film Co-production Corporation, said, “The signing of the Sino-UK Film Co-Production Treaty heralds the start of a new era in collaborative film production between the UK and China. I have reason to believe that it will open the way for broader cooperation between our respective film industries.”
