Gauls goose funding for showbiz

CNC ups budget 2.3%

PARIS — Gaul’s government-backed film and TV funder, the National Center for Cinematography (CNC), is upping its 2009 budget 2.3% to E540.6 million ($780.5 million).

French culture minister Christine Albanel said at a press conference that the CNC’s priority for 2009 will be to provide more financial help to producers by injecting $258.7 million, compared with last year’s $249.6 million.

“2009 will be characterized by the modernization of the CNC and a new leadership thanks to the creation of an administrative council, which will allow us to directly allocate funds,” Albanel said.

Moreover, the Gallic org will encourage and promote French authors — providing $16.4 million, a 10% jump from last year’s budget, for the effort. Albanel predicted that between 2007 and 2009, Gallic TV and cinema content will have bounced 50%.
