Marc Missonnier


Marc Missonnier (born 1970 in Algeria) is a French film producer. He previously co-headed Fidelité Productions before launching his own production company Moana Films. Missonnier first studied at Sciences Po in Paris, where he was heavily involved in the film club. Missonnier then studied in the production department of the prestigious Paris film school La Fémis, from which he graduated in 1996. While at La Fémis, Missonnier met fellow production student Olivier Delbosc, with whom he launched the company Fidélité Productions. Missonnier and Delbosc got their start in the 1990s producing the short films of Francois Ozon, and produced Ozon's feature film debut Sitcom (1998). They co-managed Fidélité for nearly 20 years. In 2014, he was considered by Télérama, alongside Olivier Delbosc, among the "Top 50" people in French cinema who "have the power and the talent to raise money, create films, make them popular". In 2015, after nearly 20 years at Fidélité, Missonnier created his own production company Moana Films. As of 2021, Moana Films has produced 10 features including The Odyssey, Django, Knock, Angel Face and Opération Portugal. In 2021, Moana Films partnered with Sony Pictures Entertainment France to launch Parasomnia Productions, a new label dedicated to genre movies in France. Parasomnia will produce small budget features with strong concepts, a structure similar to that of Blumhouse Productions. With a special focus on fantasy, horror, supernatural and mock documentaries, each film will have a budget cap of 1 million euros. In April 2023, Missonnier criticised the Cannes Film Festival for selecting Catherine Corsini's film Homecoming, which was the subject of controversy due to allegations of on-set misconduct, and called for boycotting the festival on Twitter. On 17 May, he said he discovered, after arriving in Cannes, that his accreditation for the film market had been revoked in retaliation to his call for a boycott. On 18 May, the European Producers Club issued a statement denouncing the revocation, saying "it can be seen as a restriction on freedom of expression". On 22 May, Missonnier reported that his accreditation had been restored. Source: Article "Marc Missonnier" from Wikipedia in English, licensed under CC-BY-SA 3.0.
