The Film was created in 2003 by Michael Gentile, a former TV producer (M6, Canal +, Paris Première) and radio director (Oui FM, Radio Nova). The vocation of this company is to produce one to two feature films a year by favouring, in an eclectic way, film-makers with assertive universes as well as international co-productions.
