#METOO – A long-awaited measure. Traveling to the Cannes Film Festival, the Minister of Culture Rachida Dati announced this Saturday, May 18, a major step forward for the movement #MeToo. From now on, on all shoots employing minors, the presence of a “ responsible for children » will be mandatory.

This measure, effective this summer, will condition access to public aid. “This will be a condition of access to CNC aid”, the National Center for Cinematography, declared the minister. The CNC’s aid was already conditional on the participation of cinema professionals in training on the subject, an obligation now extended to the entire film team.

Such progress had been called for by actress Judith Godrèche, who has become the standard-bearer for the fight against sexual violence against children and the #MeToo movement in France, since she accused filmmakers Jacques Doillon and Benoît Jacquot of rapes dating back to his adolescence.

In the Senate, during her hearing, the actress insisted that a “a child is never left alone on set”. Discussions had been initiated on this subject between the different actors in the cinematographic world.

The one who presented her short film “ Me too ” denouncing sexual violence, has also already motivated the launch of a commission of inquiry by the National Assembly devoted to violence on film sets but also in live performance, audiovisual, advertising and fashion. The hearings will begin on May 22 and a report will be submitted in early November.
