On 16 May 1990 a Co-Production Agreement has been signed between Germany and Austria. It entered into force on 1 November 1990, replacing the preceding agreement of 27 September 1966.

The Agreement applies to cultural and feature films as well as to documentaries. Those involved in the making of the film must be Austrians/Austrian residents, and Germans/resident in Germany respectively. Producers from third countries may join in.

Financial contribution of a co-producer shall be at least 30% (exceptionally 20%, for Austria under certain conditions only 10%).
