CANNES - The South African film industry is looking to Ireland to create new stories for the big screen.

The Minister of Arts and Culture, Paul Mashatile, will sign a co-production treaty with that country on Sunday, at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

The newly appointed CEO of the National Film and Video Foundation, Zamantungwa Mkosi, said the treaty signing will boost the local industry.

“We are looking forward to coming up with creative ways in order to put the treaty into practice.”

She said the arts and culture ministry will aim to ensure that filmmakers in the country benefit from the treaty.

Mkosi said culturally, the two countries have a lot in common.

South Africa has signed seven co-production treaties with other countries.
