Produced by Pierre-Louis Garnon for Baxter Films and Frédéric Jouve for Les Films Velvet, L’année du requin is co-produced by France 3 Cinéma. Pre-bought by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film benefits from the support of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, of the Landes department (where filming took place) and of the Sofitvciné Sofica. French distribution will be handled by The Jokers/Les Bookmakers, and international sales by WTFilms.
Baxter Films and Les Films Velvet (already partners on Willy 1er and Teddy) currently feature, in post-production, Guillaume Renusson’s Les Survivants (read the article). Les Films Velvet have recently produced two films which are yet to be seen: Undercover by Thierry de Peretti (article) and Les enfants des autres by Rebecca Zlotowski.
