The French Society of Cinematographers (French: Association française des directeurs de la photographie cinématographique), or the AFC[1] for short, is France's foremost professional organization of French cinematographers. Founded in 1990 by Henri Alekan, Raoul Coutard, Alain Derobe, Pierre-William Glenn, and Georges Strouvé, who were soon joined by Eduardo Serra, Pierre Lhomme, and Robert Alazraki, the AFC today has over one hundred members.

The AFC receives financial support from the Centre national de la cinématographie, and is a co-founder of Imago,[2] The European Federation of Cinematographers.

Its headquarters are located at 8, rue Francœur in the 18e arrondissement of Paris, next to the Fémis cinema academy.

  1. Following in the model of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), the official abbreviations of cinematographers' professional associations are often composed of 3 letters, the last of which is "C", as in the English word Cinematographer: British Society of Cinematographers (BSC), Associazione Italiana Autori della Fotografia Cinematografica (AIC), etc. Therefore, the AFC writes its full name as follows: Association Française des directeurs de la photographie Cinématographique.
  2. Imago (The European Federation of Cinematographers)
