On its arte.tv platform and YouTube channel ARTE Cinéma, the film offering is enriched with films and film collections that illustrate both contemporary and heritage cinema. The unit only purchases feature-length fiction films that have been released in theaters across France (national release). We do not purchase documentaries, even if they are feature-length and have been released in theaters.
The unit acquires free TV and/or free VOD exploitation rights. It must be possible to acquire these rights for the territories of France (including its overseas territories) and Germany. Free VOD rights may be extended to other European territories (French- and German-speaking Europe, Spain, Poland, etc.).
