European cinema guarantee fund
Thanks to a specific endowment from the CNC (Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée), the IFCIC guarantee can benefit short term loan facilities granted for the financing of European feature films, even when those films are not eligible to French state support schemes.
This mechanism prolongs the activity of the MEDIA production guarantee fund (MPGF) set up between 2010 and 2013 with the support of the European Union.
The guarantee can benefit to European credit institutions when they grant loans for the financing of the pre-production and/or production of European films (as defined in the Eligibility criteria below). Also, the borrowing companies of these loans must be independent European production companies (see Eligibility criteria below).
The rate of the guarantee offered by the IFCIC is of 55% of the loan amount.
