EuropaCorp (2000)

Type :  


EuropaCorp is a French movie studio headquartered in Paris. It has been a listed company on Euronext Paris since July 2007. Co-founded by Luc Besson and Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, the Group takes on a range of production activities like film distribution in France, DVD distribution, sales of French TV rights, and producing advertisements.


Luc Besson and Pierre-Ange Le Pogam worked together for the first time in 1985, on the movie Subway, directed by Luc Besson. Pierre-Ange le Pogam was then Distribution Director at Gaumont. Subsequently, virtually all the films that Luc Besson made with Gaumont between 1985 and 1999 topped the three-million ticket mark at the box office (e.g. The Big Blue, Nikita, Léon, The Fifth Element and The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc). Meanwhile, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam developed innovative promotional techniques at Gaumont which he applied for the first time in Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element. This film is France’s biggest export success of all time.

In 1997 Pierre-Ange Le Pogam became Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Gaumont.

In September 2000 the two friends created EuropaCorp.

In July 2007, EuropaCorp successfully managed its IPO on Euronext Paris.

In May 2008, the CSA, French authority for media regulation, has selected "EuropaCorp TV" project in its invitation to apply for a mobile TV channel in France.
