Co-productions are based on the collaboration between two or more producers. Co-productions treaty is an agreement between participating parties from different countries who produce a film. It is a combination of creativity, technical expertise and finances.
Film co-productions have an impact on integration of cultural and economic activities globally. Initially there was a perception that co-productions are done only to collaborate between countries with small production industries which would be able to pool resources and match up with the increasing competition internationally. However, today it is less about materialistic help and more about highlighting popular genres. Thus, co-productions are said to focus on global content which leads to the loss of relevant local issues or their representation.
Co-productions have reflected majorly on the diversification of culture as well as globalization processes. Such affiliations target international audiences as their consumer. It is observed that Asian co-producers greatly enhance the distribution and film.
