Nationality of a film
The Nationality of a film is derived from the certificate of origin issued by the film authorities of the country concerned. The term origin of a film is also used. In the case of coproduction, the country with the largest share determines the film’s nationality. This is necessary for statistical reasons. The Swiss Federal Office for Culture is responsible for the recognition of coproductions between Switzerland and other countries. The recognition is governed by international agreements. There are recognised coproductions with majority or minority Swiss participation.
