Pyramide International is part of Pyramide group which is also a domestic distribution company in France (Pyramide Distribution) and a French production company (Pyramide Productions). The company was founded in 1989.
As a world sales agent, Pyramide International (former FPI) has deliberately focussed on the “film d’auteur”, willing to promote abroad films by young directors like Sandrine Veysset (WILL IT SNOW FOR XMAS ?), Diego Lerman (TAN DE REPENTE), Wang Xiao-Shuai (BEIJING BICYCLE), Eleonore Faucher (BRODEUSES) and more recently Etgar Keret & Shira Geffen (JELLYFISH – Camera d’Or Cannes 2007) and Lucia Puenzo (XXY – Grand Prize of Critics’ Week Cannes 2007) and to follow up with those directors and their producers who have trusted the company.
Confirmed talents rapidly joined Pyramide International such as Benoit Jacquot (A SINGLE GIRL, SEVENTH HEAVEN, SCHOOL OF FLESH), Youssef Chahine (DESTINY, CHAOS), Olivier Assayas (IRMA VEP), Anne Fontaine (DRY CLEANING), Claude Miller (LA PETITE LILI), Claire Denis (NENETTE AND BONI, THE INTRUDER), Catherine Breillat (ROMANCE, AN OLD MISTRESS), Patrice Leconte (THE WIDOW OF SAINT-PIERRE), Patrice Chéreau (SON FRERE), Shohei Imamura (WARM WATER UNDER A RED BRIDGE), Tony Gatlif (VENGO, SWING, EXILS), Denis Arcand (THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS) and more recently M.S Haroun (DARATT – Grand Jury Prize Venice 2006) or Sam Garbrasky (IRINA PALM). Most of these films were also released in France by Pyramide Distribution.
Miscellanous genres, directors and producers remain the main asset of the company, allowing Pyramide to grant audiences and buyers with a wide selection of high quality French and foreign films.
Pyramide now runs a library of more than 250 titles for domestic and international distribution.
