Production Company Profile

Founded by director Zangro in 2011, Bien ou Bien Productions considers his production work as a craftsman making stories with powerful feelings, for film and television. We desire to highlight creations from our social realities by highlighting diversity. A diversity which resurrects the universality of feelings and human passions. With this aim, we have built our entire catalogue with a true density of content but also a plurality of styles and tones. Supported by many private and public partners, our films stand out in festivals around the world and reflect our production desire: to promote, to our measure, filmmakers to whom we recognize a singular eye on the world in which we live. Bien ou Bien Productions received the Young Producer Award 2018 from France Télévisions, which rewards the first six years of a production company for the excellence of its creations, and is one of the top ten producers to follow in the world according to the American magazine Variety in 2019.
