In June 2015, a partnership was signed between the CNC and the programme Creative Europe - MEDIA of the European Commission to create ACM Distribution, a new distribution scheme designed to promote the circulation of international co-productions already supported by the ACM (Aide aux cinemas du monde).
The selection committee met on November 29th 2016 and decided to support the international distribution of the following five films:
« Tramontane » by Vatche Boulghourjian (extra release in Hong-Kong, Turkey and Benelux)
« Mrs B, a North Korean Story » by Jero Yun (extra release in Benelux, United States, Spain and Japan)
« Tadmor »by Monika Borgmann and Lokman Slim (extra release in Benelux, United States, Spain, Switzerland and Tunisia)
« Neruda » by Pablo Larrain (extra release in Austria, Colombia, Germany, Romania, Switzerland and Turkey)
« Clash » by Mohamed Diab (extra release in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Taiwan, Italy, United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, Greece)
These films (3 fictions and 2 documentaries) were selected at many festivals (Cannes, La Rochelle, Zurich, Toronto, San Sebastian…), and 2 of them were chosen to represent their country at the Oscars 2017. They illustrate the vitality and diversity of global creativity. Support from ACM Distribution will make it possible to increase and stimulate their commercial distribution via theaters and online platforms in 40 extra countries.
New call open
A new call for proposals has been launched on December 5th. The deadline is February 10th, 2017.
The selection committee will meet again on this occasion in Spring 2017.
