On June 27th, Bruno Julliard, Deputy Mayor in charge of culture, and Christian Vivès, Director of Paris ERDF, signed the charter for filming in Paris according to which the use of temporary electric connections is encouraged and made easier. This permits filming crews to restrict the use of generators, which limits sound and environmental nuisances. The City of Paris and ERDF thus aim at facilitating the reception of filming crews and preserving the quality of life of the Parisians, while reducing the city environmental footprint.
ERDF, a public service company in charge of supplying electricity to 95% of the French metropolitan territory, teams up with the City for the success of the Climate Plan.
Paris, capital of cinema, hosts more 950 film shoots on 6.000 different locations every year. In a difficult economic context, the City of Paris remains committed to foster film shoots that generate jobs and economic benefits.
The City of Paris and ERDF thus contribute to the prestige and attractiveness of France at the international level.
