A draft agreement between Canada and Australia for the co-production of new media content has won approval by the board of directors of the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund. The agreement passed the board essentially unmodified from its original form, but with the proviso that it be used as a pilot only for the time being. The agreement was hammered out by a roundtable of Canadian new media producers, the Bell Fund, and Australian content organizations including the Australian Film Commission and Australian Broadcasting Corp. during a trade mission by producers here to explore the market potential Down Under (CNM, March 14/05).
