The director of “Untouchables”, Éric Tolédano, took part in a videoconference in the decisions taken by Emmanuel Macron to help the cultural sector, which was severely damaged by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Emmanuel Macron invited thirteen artists for a videoconference to speak about the necessary steps to be taken to help the arts and culture sector. Those invited were Sandrine Kiberlain, Norah Krief, Abd Al Malik, Mathilde Monnier, Catherine Ringer, Laurent Grasso, Camille Decourtye, Aurélien Bellanger, Sébastien Daucé and soprano Sabine Devieilhe. Following this meeting, Éric Tolédano said he was “delighted” to be interviewed by Europe 1, pointing out that not all the solutions could be found “in one morning”.
During the ”Grand journal du soir” of Europe 1, Eric Toledo said: “I think that the State needs to fulfill its role, and the arts world needs to be able to get back on its feet. However, arts world is not on the front line in the face of the virus, but we are not nothing either! In France, we’re always a bit distrustful, but I don’t think Emmanuel Macron can make announcements like that easily,” believes the director, who thinks it’s very fair that Netflix-type platforms participate in the financing of French cinema.
