Convention will be effective from Nov. 1
HAUGESUND — Norway has signed the European co-production convention, the 40th country to do so.
It will be effective from Nov. 1. The Norwegian film industry has long pushed for the government to sign the convention. Minister of culture Trond Giske told Daily Variety, that the delay was caused by rules in the country’s film support system, which had to changed before the convention could be signed.
“My goal is that Norway should be the leading film country in Scandinavia,” Giske said.
