The Belgian connection to Moscow was to be represented by Corsan World Sale's owner, producer-writer-director Paul Bruels, but he had some trouble getting his visa. So working with Belgian tax fund and international sales agent Corsan World Sales, U.S. attorney Harris Tulchin was the spokesman for the company at the Moscow Business Square. He discussed the nature to the co-productions Corsan is involved in. Lee Tamahori (Once were Warriors) film starring Dominic Cooper (An Education) and Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool) was executive produced by Harris and is shortlisted the next year's Berlinale. It was shot in Malta with Belgian money. The Belgian government has created the best tax rebate program yet which allows for a 150% tax deduction of investments made by Belgians into films. A Belgian - Puerto Rican co-production of Corsan which screened in the Cannes Marche is Meant to Be directed with Corsan's own Paul Bruels. It was shot in Puerto Rico with the money from Corsan. Puerto Rico offers a 40% rebate on all monies spent there on production.

Also the US$30 million Singularity goes into production this year. It be directed by Roland Joffe who also wrote the script with Indian Ajey Jhankar. An epic romance centered around four people: a British officer in colonial India; the Indian woman he falls in love with; an American marine biologist; and his lover, a researcher who is trapped in a wrecked British merchant ship, set in India, this is a Belgian - Indian co-production.
