Israel & Morocco to normalize relations: good news for film producers

US President Donald Trump tweeted today that Israel and Morocco agreed to sign a new normalization agreement to warm up the relations between the countries. There were several successful shoots taking place in Israel (for visual plates) and in Morocco (for outdoor action), but with the support of the Moroccan King and his government, many more productions will be able to shoot in both countries. Morocco offers a 20% rebate for foreign productions, while Israel formally offers no such incentives.
