South Africa New Zealand Co-Production Agreement Is
Now In Effect NFVF Calls For Applications For Projects

District 9
The South Africa Signs Co Production Agreement With New Zealand came into effect on the 20th of October 2011 following the success of 2009 blockbuster District 9, produced by New Zealand's Peter Jackson and directed by South Africa's Neill Blomkamp. The South Africa and New Zealand government co-production agreement will benefit the creative industries in both countries.

NFVF Special Projects Manager Terrence Khumalo said: "The agreement presents another great opportunity for local filmmakers to explore international avenues. As the NFVF, we always strive to present every opportunity possible to local filmmakers to ensure the development and growth of local film. New Zealand is one of the emerging film markets and this agreement is strategic in a sense that it creates an opportunity for South African filmed products to penetrate foreign markets."

Administration of the certification process has been designated to the National Film and Video Foundation in South Africa and the New Zealand Film Commission in New Zealand.

The NFVF is calling for applications for productions that can be produced in terms of this agreement. In terms of the agreement, Article 1 defines a film as an aggregate of images, or of images and sounds, embodied in any material, and includes television and video recordings, animations and digital format productions. The NFVF advises producers to lodge their applications for an advance ruling at least 8 weeks before production to allow for further requests and interrogation of supporting documentations accompanying the applications. A copy of the agreement is available for downloading on the NFVF website.

For enquiries about the requirements of the treaty and other general co-productions, contact NFVF's Special Projects manager Terrence Khumalo or Communications and Public Affairs Coordinator Khulekani Shandu.
