In response to the changing market conditions in the short film sector and to address the challenges tied to digital technology, UniFrance will manage a new aid scheme to support international film sales companies.
The CNC has decided to strengthen its support to the international promotion of short films by providing assistance to private sector companies involved in the sale of French short films abroad.
Following consultation between Unifrance, the CNC, and short film distributors, this new aid scheme aims to contribute towards structuring the international sales sector. Set up on a trial basis, this scheme will be piloted by Unifrance for a period of three years. It forms part of a series of recent reforms of the support mechanisms provided by the CNC relating to short film exports.

An evaluation of the scheme will be conducted at the end of 2019 in order to assess its efficiency and study the potential relevance of continuing it.
A description of this aid scheme is available online.
