Jamaica / UK unveil co-production treaty

The Jamaican and British governments are combining efforts to encourage filmmakers from their respective countries to work on co-productions. Broadcasting minister Shaun Woodward and Del Crooks, Jamaica's film commissioner, recntly publicised the deal, in which they will encourage UK film makers to participate in joint activities.

"The deal represents a new dimension to film production in Jamaica where practitioners from both the UK and Jamaica will be encouraged to become more active and have access to incentives if they use services from the Jamaican film industry," said Crooks.

Under the terms of the proposed co-production treaty, UK companies working on co-produced films with Jamaican filmmakers will be eligible to apply for UK national funding and UK tax relief.
