First meeting of the Franco-German Commission in Berlin
During its first meeting in Berlin, the commission decided to provide financial backing to “Tosca” and “24 heures de la vie d’une femme” as part of the newly established Franco-German co-production fund.
The first meeting of the commission in Berlin on September 11 gave concrete expression to the recently signed Franco-German mini-treaty that put in place a system of aid for co-productions. Made up of six members – Margaret Ménégoz, Yves Marmion and Véronique Cayla from France and, on the German side, Georg Alexander, Gisela Schroter and Thomas Geyer (President) – the commission selected the first projects to receive backing from the annual FFr20 million fund established by the Franco-German Film Academy.
The successful applicants in this funding round were “Tosca” by Benoît Jacquot (Euripide Productions and Integral Film) and “24 heures de la vie d’une femme” by Laurent Bouhnik (Playtime and Road Movies). The next commission meeting will take place on November 12, 2001 in Paris. Funding applications must be submitted to both the FFA (Filmforderungsanstalt – German Federal Film Board) and the CNC (Centre Nationale de la Cinématographie) before October 15, 2001.
