Films à Cinq is the combination of two producers, Sally Blake and Martin de la Fouchardière and the fusion of two cultures – Anglo and French – which means we can watch baseball and philosophize about it at the same time! Concretely, this linguistic combination has enabled the company to built a far-reaching network of contacts in the international market and we have a long history of co-productions between French and English speaking countries.

Whether it is a documentary about science, cinema or art, Films à Cinq continually pushes for experimentation and excellence in the creative expression of intelligent ideas. Our work has been shown on most major television networks, we have been nominated for Emmy’s and our films have been selected at Cannes and enjoyed cinema releases in North America.

SALLY BLAKE

— PRODUCER

A Canadian living in France, Sally has worked both sides of the Atlantic as a creator and producer of documentary films and series for both television and the cinema. It all began with hunky heroes in pink tights, when Sally co-produced the international award winning film Hitman Hart : wrestling with shadows about the bizarre world of professional wrestling. From dropkicks to evangelical pop stars, cat ladies, ‘peep culture’ and spam, Sally has produced, directed and edited scores of documentaries since then and continues to look for intriguing stories in unusual places.

MARTIN DE LA FOUCHARDIÈRE

— PRODUCER

Producer Martin de la Fouchardière has been making documentary films for the past eleven years, starting off as the production manager of the Emmy nominated Four Wings and a Prayer, the Cannes Film Festival feature doc Two in the Wave and the docu-drama Charles Darwin’s Grand Voyage. He has produced numerous international co-productions, notably the feature length docu-drama Hitler’s Museum which sold to over 20 countries worldwide, Mister Wong, The Emperor’s Lost Harbour and Licence to Krill that won Best Science Film at the Jackson Hole Film Festival. Martin de la Fouchardière is fluent in English and German and is a musician with a love of Flamenco!

RÉBECCA HAGÈGE

— CHARGÉE DE PRODUCTION

After completing her studies at Sciences Po Bordeaux four years ago, Rebecca joined the Films à Cinq team as a production and post production coordinator. Whether it’s booking shoots with New York photographers or Turkish songbirds, negotiating in English or seducing in Spanish, organizing trips in Guatemalan helicopters or on German icebreakers, in Honduran huts or Californian motels, Rébecca raises to the challenge of international productions on a daily basis.
