Notes on Germany
Germany is becoming increasingly active in the area of international feature film co-productions. Films such as Stephen Daldry's The Reader, Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (sic) and Bryan Singer's Valkyrie are among the titles to have benefited from German co-funding.
Five Australian film producers recently travelled to Munich and Berlin to meet funding agencies and producers and find out how to get the most out of the Australia-German treaty arrangements.
Co-production titles include:
At World's End
The Children of the Silk Road
Darwin's Lost Paradise
The Prisoner of St Petersburg
