Money produced 276 hours of programming

PARIS — France’s Centre National de la Cinematographie has reported that it subsidized the French animation industry to the tune of over 160 million francs ($20 million) in 2000 — 14% of the total funding invested in the animation sector.

The money went to produce 276 hours of toon programming. Animated programming has been on the decline since 1998, when more than 350 hours aired.

The CNC’s annual report called the French animation sector “extremely international,” as 44% of funding for toon programs comes from foreign investment, usually in the form of co-production.

The report named TF1 as the largest investor in animated programs among all the Gallic TV stations. Web pumped up toon funding by 43% over 1999, with $9.23 million channeled into 79 hours of programming.
