Project support


The "Aide aux Cinémas du monde" fund

Foreign professionals / French professionals
The Aide aux Cinémas du monde is a selective fund reserved for projects involving feature films, animated films and creative documentaries aiming to be screened for the first time in cinemas. It may be granted before filming (production aid). Projects not selected for pre-filming assistance may be presented for post-filming assistance (postproduction aid).
The Aide aux Cinémas du monde offers a unique entry point to filmmakers from around the world. It aims to make collaboration between film-makers and professionals from around the world more open, more attractive and simpler, with a view to jointly co-producing works that will contribute to promoting cultural diversity.

Every year, four sessions are organised and 50 to 60 projects are supported.

Since its creation in 2012, 508 films from 105 different countries have been supported, including

  • Boy from Heaven de Tarik Saleh
  • Metronom de Alexandru Belc
  • Le Bleu du Caftan de Maryam Touzan
  • La Jauria de Andrés Ramirez Pulido
  • Plan 75 de Hayakawa Chie
