About Cesar Awards

The Cesar Award is the national film award of France. It is delivered in the Nuit des César ceremony and it was first awarded in 1976.

The nominations are selected by the members of twelve categories of filmmaking professionals and supported by the French Ministry of Culture. It is an initiative from the academy for the science and technology of cinema in Paris.

The Cesar Award is considered as the highest film honour in France, the French film industry's equivalent to the Molière Award for theatre, and the Victoires de la Musique for music. In cinema, it is the French equivalent of the Academy Award in the United States.
