New Policy for Chinese-Taiwan Co-Productions
on December 05, 2012
The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television of China has updated its policy regarding co-productions between Taiwan and mainland Chinese films. The original agreement, signed in 2010, stated that films from Taiwan are exempt from China's film import quota.
The news today establishes that a Taiwan film is defined as one spoken in the Chinese language and where at least half of the film's crew and copyrights come from Taiwan.
With regard to co-productions between Taiwan and mainland China, the story and characters must relate to both countries and one-third of the cast must comprised of Chinese actors. Under these circumstances, the films will be subject to the same rights as a mainland Chinese film.
