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:
– Regulatory

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 filmmaking. 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

The Florence Gould Foundation, an American foundation devoted to French-American exchange and amity, has consistently provided major support to Etant donnés. Born of French parents in San Francisco in 1895, Florence Gould lived both in the United States and France during her life. That life was one in which an interest and dedication to arts and letters was always paramount. Having no family, at her death in 1993, Florence Gould left the bulk of her fortune to the foundation bearing her name.
