The César & Techniques project honours the entire cinema technical sector, whose professions are distinguished by the Césars - directors of photography, editors, sound engineers, decorators, costume designers, all of whom bring to the film an essential and unique know-how - but also the technical service providers able to understand and support the deployment of their talent.
The mosaic of Technicians
A wonderful census and contact tool, it gathers the names of all the technicians eligible for one of the five Technical César, thus allowing to find those who have made the direction of the photography, the sets, the costumes, the sound, or the editing of any French production film released in theaters in the year, but also the name of the technical services companies that have collaborated on at least one of these films.
It performs the preselection of French technical services companies that will compete for the César&Techniques Trophy or for the Innovation Award, among all those who worked on at least one of the films eligible for the César for Best Film and who answered the calls. to applications that have been sent to all these companies.

This list of “Technical Labels” will have no obligation but will shed light on the technicians who have marked the cinematographic year.
