Official co-productions will be treated as national projects in each country and will subsequently be entitled to relevant financial support.

“Our intention is to increase co-operation between Bosnia and Herzegovina and France in the area of filmmaking, in order to expand the filmmaking possibilities for film professionals from both countries and to enable better access to the French market by BH films [Bosnia Herzegovina], and for French films in the BH market,” said Adil Osmanovic, minister of civil affairs for Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“I am especially glad that the co-production agreement was signed during the Sarajevo Film Festival, as this highlights the importance of the film sector and emphasises Sarajevo as a city of film.”

France offers co-production support as well as a 30% Tax Rebate for International Production. Bosnia and Herzegovina provides co-production support through the Sarajevo City of Film Fund.
