Idéale Audience has always promoted an author policy (following directors like Bruno Monsaingeon, Johan van der Keuken, Frederick Wiseman, Alexandre Sokurov, Gérald Caillat, Anna-Célia Kendall, Andy Sommer, Don Kent, Philippe Béziat, Olivier Simonnet, Benoît Jacquot…) and an international approach, backed by a strong marketing policy conducted in more than forty countries.
Ideale Audience collaborates with major TV channels in the world (France Televisions, ARTE, BBC, ARD, ZDF, NHK, WNET, etc.) and with long-established distributors (EuroArts, Showgate, Celluloid Dreams, Doc & Films…). Its films are regularly selected in major international film festivals (Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Rome, Toronto...) or television festivals (Golden Prague, FIPA, FIFA, IDFA...) where they are often awarded or nominated (International Emmy Award, Prix Italia, Golden Prague, Fipa gold, Caesars, Bafta...).
High artistic standards, concerns to preserve a cultural heritage and an international approach are the key elements on which the three producers of Idéale Audience, Pierre-Olivier Bardet, Hélène Le Coeur and Françoise Gazio, continue to build a distinctive editorial profile.
