Valentin Rebondy

After studying cinema at the University of Paris La Sorbonne and going to a higher school of graphic arts, Valentin Rebondy joined the company Cinéma Public Films in 2001.

After several years of apprenticeship in the distribution profession, and passing through all the functions attached to this activity, he was appointed manager of the company in 2009 and then instilled a new dynamic within the company. His desire to return to the fundamentals which saw the birth of the company (founded in 1989), namely the distribution of cinematographic films intended for the youngest audiences, led him to develop a specialization which is today the strength of the company on the French market. His taste and his passion for animated cinema pushed him to travel the country to meet the public to conduct workshops and meetings around the different techniques of animated cinema. After the COVID-19 crisis, which put the entire sector on hold, he is driving a new strategy by deploying his entire team in the field, to be as close as possible to the concerns of cinema operators and their audiences. Thus, he hopes to be able to best meet the expectations of an entire sector in need of singularity, attractiveness and human incarnation. This proximity perfectly meets his deepest aspirations and he shares this project with the producers and creative talents of the films he chooses to defend.
