Advertorial: Jordan and Belgium Sign an Audiovisual Co-Production Agreement

On the 5th of July, 2021, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Kingdom of Belgium, and with the support of the Royal Film Commission – Jordan (RFC) and the Embassy of Belgium in Amman, Jordan signed an audiovisual co-production agreement with the Government of Flanders in Belgium for five years.

The agreement aims to establish a framework between the two countries in the audiovisual sector and their co-productions. It contributes to the vitality of the audiovisual industries in both regions and, thus, their economic and cultural exchanges.

The signing took place at The Royal Film Commission - Jordan in Amman between the Ministry of Culture, represented by the Minister of Culture Ali Al-Ayed, and the Government of Flanders, represented by Luc Delrue on behalf of Jan Jambon, Minister-President of the Government of Flanders and Flemish Minister for Foreign Policy, Culture, Digitalization, and Facilities.

"This co-production agreement goes in line with the RFC's efforts to provide additional opportunities for the Jordanian film industry. Cinema is a demanding cultural sector, which requires resources at various levels: artistic, technical, and financial. We are confident that this cooperation is a gateway to the necessary resources and benefits available in each country," said Al-Bakri.

The Jordan and Belgium Audiovisual Co-Production Agreement is the latest, following the agreement signed between Jordan and Canada in 2016.
