We are loo­king for a glo­bal­ly min­ded col­le­ague, who has orga­niza­tio­nal skills, is result-ori­en­ted and has an inte­rest in art-house cine­ma, to join our Paris-based finan­ce team, working in a dyna­mic and inter­na­tio­nal envi­ron­ment.


Based in Paris and Ber­lin, Copro­duc­tion Office is an inter­na­tio­nal dis­tri­bu­tor and pro­du­cer of bold, award-win­ning films.

Copro­duc­tion Office’s CEO and foun­der Phil­ip­pe Bober has work­ed with pro­mi­nent ground-brea­king direc­tors* from ear­ly on in their care­ers and has pro­du­ced thir­ty-three films to date. The majo­ri­ty of the­se films were sel­ec­ted for the main com­pe­ti­ti­ons in Can­nes, Venice and Ber­lin, whe­re they have recei­ved many major pri­zes, most nota­b­ly the Venice Gol­den Lion in 2014 for Roy Andersson’s A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE, and the Pal­me d’Or in 2017 and in 2022 for THE SQUARE and TRIANGLE OF SADNESS by Ruben Öst­lund. Copro­duc­tion Office’s inter­na­tio­nal sales divi­si­on dis­tri­bu­tes a cata­lo­gue com­po­sed of films pro­du­ced by Phil­ip­pe Bober as well as acqui­red titles and res­to­red clas­sics, inclu­ding Rober­to Rossellini’s key films. The cata­lo­gue is uni­que for its artis­tic strength, with films that have an indi­vi­du­al and distinc­ti­ve cine­ma­tic lan­guage, and often dar­ing con­tent.
