Two phases take place during the production of a film eligible for financial support, these are the issuing of :
- investment approval, which can be mandatory or optional, depending on the nature of the funding requested and
- production approval, which is mandatory for all films and takes place after the film has been produced.
The “Approval Commission” brings together those qualified from a financial, technical and artistic perspective and is informed of all investment approval requests.
All production approval requests submitted to the CNC are also referred to the Commission.
Investment and production approvals are issued by the CNC Director General.
