The Albanian Parliament has ratified the Agreement of cinematographic co-production between the Government of the Republic of Albania and the Italian Government, being the first agreement the Albanian Government signed in this field.

According to the Agreement, the financial contribution of both countries for state-aided films shall be approximately at a rate of 20% - 80%. Thereby all categories of cinematographic production, including fiction, cartoons and documentary films, are suitable for financing. The competent state authorities from both countries will have to approve the proposed projects of the films. To obtain financial support, the directors of the films must be primarily from Italy and Albania, but film directors who are nationals of Member States of the European Union are also allowed to apply. The actors and other participating persons ought to be from the two signatory countries and the filming must take place mainly in Italy and Albania.

The contract period will initially last for 2 years and shall continue until either party gives notice of withdrawal.
