Franco-American producers tie-up

PGA agrees to deal with APC

The L.A.-based Producers’ Guild of America (PGA) and the French union Association des Producteurs de Cinéma (APC) have inked an historic agreement to facilitate cooperation between the two guilds.

Inked between PGA’s France representative, Antoine de Cazotte and APC’s prexy, Eric Altmayer (Mandarin Productions), the deal aims at helping French and American producers who are looking to develop projects set in either France or the U.S.

“This partnership took four years to materialize,” said de Cazotte. “The timing is perfect because now more than ever there are loads of interesting projects being developed between French and American producers.”

De Cazotte last worked as production supervisor on jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud’s $70 million “Oceans” and is set to work on Anne Dominique Toussaint’s (“The French Kissers”) next film.

Announced in Cannes on Sunday, the deal will allow for the exchange of info between members of each Guild, and between the governing bodies of both.

Producers of both guilds will be able to exchange information, have access to membership data, as well as visit and attend/conduct seminars in each others unions.
