The British Film Commission and Norwegian Film Commissions have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, strengthening ties between the UK and Norwegian screen industries.
On November 2nd, 2022, the British Film Commission and the Norwegian Film Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), with the aim of enhancing the collaboration between the UK and Norwegian screen industries, as well as facilitating an increase of film and high-end TV production between the two territories. The pact was signed in Oslo by trade reps from both countries.
Both countries are leading global production hubs for film and high-end TV production, playing host to some of the world’s biggest titles in recent years. In fact, the UK and the Norwegian screen industries are thriving, as both territories continue to attract an increased number of major productions through the combination of tax incentives, world-class crews and infrastructure and an immense variety of unique locations.
Recent world-renowned film and high-end TV productions filmed across both jurisdictions include Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning (Paramount, 2023), No Time to Die (MGM/Universal/EON, 2021), Black Widow (Marvel, 2021), Tenet (Warner Bros. 2020), The Postcard Killings (Good Films Collective, 2020) and The Innocents (Netflix, 2018).
Through the MoU, the BFC and the NFC seek to encourage greater cultural, commercial and creative exchange between the UK and Norway whilst actively working together to foster opportunities to support inward investment in both countries. This agreement also highlights the national film commissions’ commitment to facilitating a frictionless and film-friendly service, which supports productions across both territories.
