Galatée Films is a French film production company founded by Jacques Perrin, who is also its President. The name Galatée (Galatea in English) refers to the Greek goddess of the sea.

Specialized in “large-scale production” nature and wildlife films, as well as feature films whose subjects mainly focus on history or politics, Galatée’s filmography has earned the company its prestigious reputation in France and abroad.

At first, Galatée went by another name… In 1968, faced with the difficulties that Costa-Gavras was encountering to find financing for his film Z, Jacques Perrin, who had a role in the film, decided to become its producer. Two years later

Z won the Oscar for best foreign film.

In 1982, his production company became Cinéma 7; then in 1989, Galatée Films.

Championing a cinema focusing on “elsewhere” and “emotion,” both through fiction and documentary, Galatée Films has embarked on a constant quest for universal stories, which often highlight the fundamental role of wildlife in the preservation of our planet, and humankind’s duty to their fellow men and women, as well as towards nature.

Today, Jacques Perrin and his team are developing a dozen or so projects, which all share a common ambition: 

the desire to awe and amaze.
