The “Netflix of French cinema” concludes 2 strategic licensing agreements, and doubles its catalog


Cinessance is expanding its curated library of classic and modern films for French moviegoers with a new film every day until the end of the year.

SAN FRANCISCO, September 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A new French film per day on the platform for French moviegoers.

With 13 million French speakers in North America10 million American residents who claim French ancestry and half a million French expatriates in the region, Cinessance solves a problem – the lack of easy access to French movies – and provides the added benefit of eliminating the fatigue of streaming through an organized library. Cinessance aims to discover and deepen the knowledge of French culture through cinema.

While the major streaming platforms have seen their subscriber growth stagnate or even decline since the start of the year, niche platforms focused on quality and curated content have accelerated their growth. Building on this success, Cinessance founder Clément Monnet today announced the addition of over 85 new French films and documentaries to the Cinessance library.

“Launching last year with the most established French studios, such as TF1 Studio, StudioCanal and EuropaCorp paved the way for our content expansion strategy. Today, I am delighted that we have been able to add Distrib Film US to our list of trusted partners for film distribution and reinforces the attractiveness of Cinessance’s offer North America“, said Monnet.

Cinessance is currently the only place in the US where you can stream papicha (2019) (César for best first feature film 2020, “Un Certain Regard” Cannes Selection 2019), Billy and buddy (2013) (a children’s classic, with a hilarious duet Marina Fois & Franck Dubosc), On the way to school (2013) (a documentary about four students from around the world)), and Conviction (2018) (the story of a mysterious disappearance will delight True Crime fans).

famous french actors Jean Dujardin and Vincent Cassel will also be featured in the next batch of Cinessance releases, with the first starring in the comedy spy series OSS117 (2006, 2009) and the latter in the gangster movie based on a true story Mesrine (2008).

In addition to a growing catalog, Cinessance has expanded its network of partners to include lesson plans for select films. By providing these tools to schools and organizations that teach the French language, Cinessance aims to educate the public about French cinema and French culture in general.
