Important

Though the English and French versions of the Agreement specify that coproduction applications must be made simultaneously to both administrations at least thirty (30) days before shooting begins, the Greek version of the Agreement specifies that applications must be made at least sixty (60) days before shooting begins. (Annex to the Agreement)

Consequently, and until further notice, we recommend that applications be made to the two competent authorities at least sixty (60) days before shooting begins.
