Requests for new arrangements

Official co-productions can only be made where Arrangements are in place between the countries.

In Australia, the negotiation of Arrangements is managed by the Australian Government’s Department of Communications and the Arts. Any requests for the Government to pursue new Arrangements with other countries must be made to the Department, addressing the Department’s Guidelines for Entering New Co-production Arrangements.

Submissions should be addressed to:
Department of Communications and the Arts
GPO Box 2154
Canberra  ACT  2601
E: [email protected]
W: arts.gov.au/film-tv

Entering a new Arrangement is not a simple matter, however, as the negotiation itself is a very long process for Government and there are a number of issues to take into account before even considering whether to initiate negotiations.

You should not assume that an Arrangement would be put in place on the basis of a single proposed film alone.
