CULTURAL SERVICES OF THE FRENCH EMBASSY IN THE U.S.
The French Cultural Services provides a platform for exchange and innovation between French and American artists, intellectuals, educators, students, the tech community, and the general public. Based in New York City, Washington D.C., and eight other cities across the US, the Cultural Services develops the cultural economy by focusing on six principal fields of action: the arts, literature, cinema, the digital sphere, French language and higher education.
CENTRE NATIONAL DU CINEMA ET DE L’IMAGE ANIMEE
Created in 1946, the Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée (CNC) is a public administrative organization, set up as a separate and financially independent entity.
The principal missions of the CNC are:
– support for the film, broadcast, video, multimedia and technical industries,
– promotion of film and television for distribution to all audiences
– preservation and development of the film heritage
FRANCO-AMERICAN CULTURAL FUND
The Franco-American Cultural Fund (FACF) is a collaboration involving American guilds and industry associations representing the creators of film and television shows (the Directors Guild of America – DGA, the Writers Guild of America, West – WGAW and the Motion Picture Association – MPA) and SACEM (the French authors’, composers’ and publishers’ organization). Created in March 1996 at SACEM’s initiative and financed by Private Copy levy funds, this unique partnership was designed with the goal of creating a common Cultural Fund to promote and teach the art of film making. Its mission is to promote cinematographic creation and restoration on both sides of the Atlantic, to encourage young talent and to promote dialogue amongst professionals from both countries.
FLORENCE GOULD FOUNDATION
HIGHBROW was conceived by actor Ronald Guttman who, as a producer, is able to collaborate with talented writers, filmmakers, directors, and actors for stage, screen, and various other productions. HIGHBROW was created to serve the arts as a contributor, nurturer, and advocate. HIGHBROW provides resources and encouragement to film and theatre production during the critical stages of development from concept to completion. While our focus is on independent film and theatre, HIGHBROW is also interested in sustaining all arts as a means of artist self-expression, cultural representation, geopolitical understanding, education, enlightenment, and entertainment. With a holistic approach to producing, HIGHBROW is interested in engaging in a full circle process where ideas can be fostered and developed into fully cultivated works that serve both their creators and audiences. HIGHBROW takes risks to help build a platform for directors and artists from which they can explore their own vision and creation process. We seek to bring an eclectic, introspective, international, understated, and original collection of works to fruition.
