Foreign co-productions in France

bbde welcomes foreign producers who seek to enter into co-production with a French company whether they:

  • Shoot partly in France
  • or they simply wish to access the French market (financial co-production)

bbde takes care of not only finding the best partner for the film in France but also implementing the co-production agreement that will provide, in conjunction with one of the numerous bi-lateral agreements signed by France or the European Convention on Cinematographic Co-Production, access to financing reserved for films approved by the French government.

As part of this service, bbde supervises:

  • private financing research (broadcasters, distributors, SOFICAs, etc.)
  • requests for public and private aid
  • regulatory procedures (approvals, production authorisations, etc.)
  • financial management of the production
