UniFrance congratulates Alain Attal, winner of the 12th Daniel Toscan du Plantier Prize
With this prize awarded to Alain Attal (who had received it a first time in 2012) the Académie des César honors a producer whose films have met with great success internationally (already more than 9 millions spectators outside France).
The producer, via his company Trésor Films, of two recent titles that were a success with French audiences and critics alike (Sink or Swim by Gilles Lellouche, nominated for ten categories at the César awards, and In Safe Hands by Jeanne Herry, nominated in seven categories), Alain Attal is also behind several internationally successful films, which have already crossed the million admissions' threshold outside France:
- The Concert with 2,81 million spectators (€17.4 million in box office revenues)
- Tell No One with 1.63 million spectators (€8.44 million in box office revenues)
- Little White Lies with 1.13 million spectators (€7,65 million in box office revenues)
If we add these figures to the results of Populaire and Mon roi, among other successes, as well as the first figures generated abroad by Sink or Swim, his productions have attracted more than 9 million foreign spectators.
Sink or Swim has already released in twenty territories and has registered its best performances in Italy (160,000 admissions – €1.07 million in box office revenues) and Spain (157,000 admissions – €959,000). It has been running for 15 weeks in Belgium (95,000 admissions – €679,000) and French-speaking Switzerland (35,000 admissions – €458,000), and for 13 weeks in Quebec (43,000 admissions – €273,000). It will soon arrive on several other markets.
Meanwhile, after its first releases in Belgium, French-speaking Switzerland and Quebec, In Safe Hands is anticipated in 10 new territories, where it will soon release.
UniFrance wishes to congratulate Alain Attal for the quality and diversity of the films produced at his instigation via Trésor Films, which have contributed for several years to the success and influence of French cinema in the world.
