There will be more opportunities for screen producers in Australia and Malaysia to collaborate thanks to a new co-production agreement.

7 July 2021

The Agreement Between the Government of Malaysia and the Government of Australia on Film Co-Production will foster creative exchange and generate new screen projects.

  • This formal connection will pave the way for more Australians to work and connect with the growing Asian industry and opens access to large audiences.
  • The agreement will help both Australia and Malaysia to improve their standing in the global screen production marketplace.

Once a project qualifies as a co-production, it opens access to government funding in both countries and enables productions to count towards local content quotas.

This latest agreement is the 13th through Australia's International Co-production Program, which has encompassed 199 projects with a total combined budget of around $2 billion since it began in 1986.
