Ina is a major player in the production of documentaries in France, but also calls on foreign partners to develop ambitious co-productions.

Productions and co-productions

Ina has been innovating in all areas of image since it was founded. Every year, it produces or co-produces dozens of programmes with a strong editorial line, placing all the topics covered into perspective and context.

Ina also aims to play an active role in introducing new audiovisual writing styles, highlighting new talent, and working in all the new areas of audiovisual expression and means of diffusion.

Over the years, more than 2,300 documentaries and programmes produced by Ina have been included in broadcasts by the main French and international televisions channels, and, more recently, the new forms of expression and diffusion made available by digital technology – starting with Ina PREMIUM, the on-demand service launched by Ina in October 2015.

International productions

Among the 60 annual productions (on average) Ina works on as an associate producer, international co-productions enable it to reach audiences on all continents.

This is the case of the Serge Viallet series "Mystères d’archives" (Mysteries in the Archives), which in 2017 is in its fifth season: an Ina/Arte co-production with Finnish and Swiss television and the participation of the Canadian Film Office (ONF).

Recent international co-productions include Zhao Liang’s "Behemoth", a prizewinner at the Venice Mostra in 2015, "France Israël" by Camille Clavel, "Georges Braque, autoportrait" by Michael Gaumnitz, "Picasso, la naissance d’une icône" (Picasso, the birth of an icon) by Hopi Lebel, "Jérôme Bosch, le diable aux ailes d’ange" (Hieronymous Bosch, the devil with angel wings) by Eve Ramboz and Nathalie Plicot, and "Cuba en suspens" (Cuba pending) by Carmen Castillo.

To celebrate the centenary of the 1914-18 war, Ina has co-produced the series "La Grande guerre des nations" (The Great War of Nations) by Eric Deroo, a project developed with six partners, including, for the first time, the Saudi channel Al Arabiya, and Canadian television.
