Discover all the video recordings of the 2nd Unifrance Export Day: roundtable discussions, keynote addresses, presentations!

It was a real pleasure to meet again at the 2nd Export Day during the Unifrance Rendez-vous in Paris, on January 11, 2022. This event took place at the Théâtre Marigny and brought together many industry professionals. The French Presidency of the EU was an opportunity to promote the French model in Europe, as well as the richness of its market and the European networks, which form a unique template of soft power and continental influence.

First, international sales agents and public policy makers presented their ideas for reviving the industry, promoting French production, and reaffirming the crucial role of exporters in the face of the pandemic in a roundtable discussion entitled Exporting works: Reinforcement of France's cultural soft power.

In the second roundtable discussion, French cinema: What is the place of the international market in the French production model?, the floor was given to producers and an artist who discussed the place of the international market in our unique production system.

The afternoon focused on Europe with a roundtable discussion: Distribution, coproductions, alliances: France at the center of the reinvention of European networks. This was an opportunity to recall the central place of the European market for French production, but also the role of France in coproductions and cooperations, and alliances on a European scale.
