Coproducing with Europe

Coproduction is becoming a more and more significant consideration for production companies but has also been a strategic production and broadcast choice for Quebec broadcasters that associate with European counterparts to jointly create content. This discussion groups hones in on the strategic and cultural commonalities that lead to these coventures to better understand the ecosystem of official co-production, its financial structures and other added benefits that come from it.
