.Mille et Une. Films is a company created in 1995 in Rennes. We produce mainly creative documentaries for television (ARTE, France Télévisions, YLE, RTBF, SVT, etc.) and cinema. Our films are regularly shown in national (Cinéma du Réel, Cannes, FIPADOC, FID, Les Etats Généraux de Lussas, etc.) and international festivals (Dei Popoli, FIFA, Locarno, Dok Leipzig, etc.). Mille et Une Films has a catalog of about sixty documentaries and a dozen fictions.

We accompany both established directors and emerging authors. The films we support are personal, demanding projects that take a committed and/or offbeat look at the world.

The regional anchoring of the company is a choice that we defend. We have eager to participate in the development of the talents of our territory, in collaboration with local broadcasters, while relying on a wider network at the national and international level. This allows us to actively participate in the dynamics of the regional industry. This space allows the development of projects with freer forms or by emerging authors.

We see co-productions as a collective and stimulating way to defend films, whether they are interregional, European or even international.

Created and carried by Gilles Padovani for almost 30 years, the arrival of Emmanuelle Jacq in the team in 2019 is part of the continuity of a documentary production with the same high standards, the renewed choice of emergence and a mixture of proximity and openness to new horizons.

In 2023, a new stage in the adventure begins with the merger of the company Les Nouveaux Jours in a spirit of cooperation and service to the films. Now led by three producers, Morgane Carriou, Emmanuelle Jacq and Maël Mainguy, the two companies combine their skills to welcome and develop projects from all horizons, driven by the personality and vision of authors from here and elsewhere.

Mille et Une Films is a member of Films en Bretagne, SPI, Eurodoc and a member of Tënk.
