Who are we ?

Ligne éditoriale des films de force majeure

Films de Force Majeure develops, produces and co-produces films by fostering singular and committed authorial visions, from all over the world, and capable of reaching a long-term and diverse audience.

Passionate about cinema in all its shapes and forms, we are driven by human and artistic encounters that reveal a true convergence of values, beyond borders and cultural differences.

Our ultimate desire: that the films we accompany transform those who see them through a unique cinematic experience each time.
