The César & Techniques project honours the entire technical sector of the film industry, whose professions are distinguished by the Césars – directors of photography, editors, sound engineers, set designers, costume designers, all of whom bring indispensable and unique know-how to the film – as well as the technical service providers capable of understanding and accompanying the deployment of their talent.
The César & Techniques Trophy
It rewards a company in the technical sector of the French film industry for its ability to highlight an event or development strategy that is particularly synergistic with the film industry, or a particular contribution to film creation over the past year.
The César & Techniques Innovation Award
It is intended to highlight a new product or service that has been marketed and put into operation, contributing to the development of creation and the quality of distribution of cinematographic works, while at the same time marking a strong evolution within the industry.
Each year, the Academy edits a guide for identifying and contacting all the technicians eligible for one of the Technical Césars, thus making it possible to find those who have directed the photography, sets, costumes, sound or editing of any French film released in theatres during the year, as well as the names of the technical service companies that have collaborated on at least one of these films.
