Alain Attal, who manages Paris-based outfit Trésor Films, has won the 12th Daniel Toscan du Plantier Award handed out by the Academy of Film Arts and Techniques to acknowledge the best producer of 2018. He thus follows in the footsteps of last year’s victors, Marie-Ange Luciani and Hugues Charbonneau (of Les Films de Pierre).
Attal, who has a total of around 30 features under his belt, enjoyed a particularly fruitful 2018, with two movies that found favour with audiences and critics alike: Sink or Swim [+leggi anche:

Tomorrow, Trésor Films is bringing out The Wolf’s Call [+leggi anche:

Interestingly, Alain Attal (who was keen to share his victory with Hugo Sélignac, of Chi-Fou-Mi Productions) has won the second Daniel Toscan du Plantier Award of his career, after previously scooping the prize in 2012. He is thus neck and neck on the winners’ list with Sylvie Pialat (of Les Films du Worso) and Grégoire Sorlat (of Why Not), who have also tasted victory twice, while the grand record holder is still Pascal Caucheteux (of Why Not), with three of the prizes in his trophy cabinet.
