Le Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée or CNC (the National Centre for Cinema and the Moving Image) is an agency of the French Ministry of Culture, and is responsible for the production and promotion of cinematic and audiovisual arts in France. The CNC is a publicly owned establishment, with legal and financial autonomy.

Created by law on 25 October 1946 as the Centre national de la cinématographie (National Centre for Cinematography), it is currently directed by Frédérique Bredin.

The CNC archives are located in the former Fort de Bois-d'Arcy to the southwest of Paris. Initially established in 1969 to house combustible nitrate films, the archives now house modern acetate films as well.[1]
