Support for the "World cinema"

 The World Cinema Support (“Aide aux cinémas du monde”) is a fund dedicated to international co-productions.

Jointly created by the Ministry for Culture and Communication and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, it is managed by the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée (CNC) and the Institut français.

This new fund takes over from the Fonds Sud Cinéma, a fund for films from the Southern hemisphere, and from AFLE, for foreign-language films, thereby creating a single point of entry for film directors from around the world. Its objective is to facilitate associations between foreign directors and French professionals, making such partnerships more open and attractive, with a view to co-producing projects that would promote cultural diversity.

This is a selective fund, and is granted as a subsidy either before or after completion of a project. It is granted to foreign feature-length film projects that are seeking support from French co-producers. In 2012, it had a total budget of 6 million euros. Each year, 4 or 5 sessions are organized, thereby supporting 40 to 60 projects.
