Ministry of Culture Inflates Spanish Film Cuota With Foreign Films
According to the Ministry of Culture, the Spanish film cuota amounts to 17%. However, the cuota has in fact fallen by 12% during the first six months of the year, with the rest being filled by American films.
This is due to counting films such as Sahara and The Kingdom of Heaven as Spanish productions, although the Spanish participation amounts to less than a sixth. The national films cuota has therefore fallen to 10.3%, rather than the Ministry's figure of 17%.
