Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Does a Moroccan co production qualify ?

A Moroccan-foreign coproduction can benefit from production support. In this case the eligibility tests are applied uniquely to the foreign co-producer’s spend in Morocco.

Requests for production support should be sent to the Secretary of the Commission for Foreign Production Support, overseen by the Director of the CCM. The commission sits twice a year minimum and otherwise when necessary.
