Produced by Benjamin Elalouf and Alexandre Sykora for Moonshaker Films as executive co-producers with Stone Angels (Pierre-Ange Le Pogam), La crème de la crème is being made on a budget of around €3.9m that includes pre-acquisitions by Canal+ and Ciné+, as well as support from ISF Cinéma and the Ile-de-France region that hosted the film's 39 days of shooting. Stone Angels (to release Hugo Gélin’s Comme des frères on November 21 and currently shooting Olivier Dahan’s Grace of Monaco – read more) is handling the film’s distribution in France as well as its international sales.
