It is as a tribute to the determination and unconditional love that producers have for cinema that the Academy organizes each year the Producers Dinner, during which the Daniel Toscan du Plantier Award is presented.
The Production Guide lists all the producers and executive producers of films eligible for the César for Best Film. It's a great directory of French production.
