Audrey Azoulay, Minister of Culture and Communication and Raymond Araygi, Minister of Culture of the Lebanese Republic, today signed a new film co-production agreement between France and Lebanon.

This agreement offers Lebanese professionals greater opportunities to co-produce with France. French producers and directors will also have easier access to Lebanese projects and producers with whom they wish to intensify their collaboration.

Through this agreement, France and Lebanon are taking a new step in defending cultural diversity and intend to give additional impetus to the rich and dense Franco-Lebanese cooperation in the field of cinema.
