From Cinema to Immersive Digital Experience:
70 Years of Innovation in French Public Policies

France’s public policies in the film and audiovisual industries have inspired and continue to inspire many countries around the world. Sometimes criticized as protectionist, these policies introduced after World War II led France to become the first European hub in the field of film production and exportation. The round table will discuss the ambitious and innovative approach taken by the CNC (Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée) to sustain the French film, audiovisual and new media industry. From movies to video games and from web series to the immersive medium of virtual reality, the French public support system plays a key role in boosting creativity and innovation in the filmmaking and new media industries. How have content creators been embracing these new opportunities?
