History of Cinema and Public Policies : panel Discussion with CNC Executives at Columbia Maison Française NY on March 5

Join the Columbia Maison Française for a lively discussion on French Cinema, A State Affair: History of Cinema and Public Policies from World War II to the Digital Age on thursday March, 5 at 6:00 pm.

Could the classic films of Truffaut, Godard or, more recently, Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) have existed without the generous forms of support provided to the French film industry? Many countries have been inspired by France’s public policies in the filmmaking industry. Sometimes critiqued as protectionist, these policies, introduced after World War II, allowed France to become the first European hub of film production and exportation, and one of the leading world powers in the industry. How has the French system evolved since the end of World War II? What relationships has it had with the American model ?

Speaking on the panel will be :

Frédérique Bredin - President of the Centre National du Cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC)
Pierre-Emmanuel Lecerf - Director of International Affairs at the Centre National du Cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC)
Laurent Creton - Historian, President of the Conseil Académique and Vice-President of the Commission de la Recherche at Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris III University
Jonathan Buchsbaum - Professor of Media Studies, CUNY Graduate Center and Queens College, CUNY
James Schamus - Professor of Professional Practice in Film, Columbia School of the Arts
