The Institut français is in charge of implementing France’s cultural action abroad and was set up in 2010. Under the supervision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, its role is to act as the conduit for a new, more ambitious “diplomacy of influence”, within the framework of French governmental policies and priorities. It helps to promote French influence abroad through greater dialogue with foreign cultures, while responding to the needs of France via a policy of listening, partnership and openness to other cultures.
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 which comes under the authority of the French ministry of culture and communication. Its principal missions are regulatory; support for the film, broadcast, video, multimedia and technical industries; promotion of film and television for distribution to all audiences and preservation and development of the film heritage.
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.
