COLCOA, the largest French Film Festival in the world was founded in 1997 by the Franco-American Cultural Fund, a unique collaborative effort of the Directors Guild of America, the Motion Picture Association, the Writers Guild of America West, and France’s Society of Authors Composers and Publishers of Music (SACEM). COLCOA is also supported by l’Association des Auteurs-Réalisateurs-Producteurs (ARP), the Film and TV Office of the French Embassy in Los Angeles (French Consulate), the CNC, TVFI and UNIFRANCE.
COLCOA is the acronym of “City of Light, City of Angels” the original name of an event celebrating relationships between filmmakers from Paris and Los Angeles, the two historic capitals of cinema. Since 2015, the festival’s name has officially become COLCOA April 24th to May 2nd, in the prestigious theaters of the Directors Guild of America on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood (3 theaters, a 210 capacity lounge and a 1,500 capacity lobby).
