Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria concerning Cinematographic Relations
Projects of all lengths and all sizes, including animation and documentaries, produced on film, videotape recorder or videodisk, for distribution to theatres, on television, by videocassettes, videodisks or any other means.
SHOOTING AND PERFORMERS – LAB WORK – VERSIONING/DUBBING
Studio shooting must be carried out in one or other of the countries participating in the co-production. Location shooting, exterior or interior, in a country not participating in the co-production may be authorized, if the script or action of the work so requires and if technicians from Canada and Algeria take part in the shooting.
The directors of cinematographic productions, as well as technicians and performers participating in the production, must be nationals of Algeria or Canada, or resident in Algeria or permanent residents of Canada.
Should the cinematographic co-production so require, the participation of performers other than those provided for in the preceding paragraph may be permitted, subject to agreement between the competent authorities of both countries.
Two versions shall be made of each cinematographic production, one in English or French, the other in Arabic. These versions may include dialogue in other languages as the script may require. The English and/or French version shall be made in Canada and the Arabic version in Algeria.
