PARIS -- Gallic Institute for the Financing of Cinema and Cultural Industries gave its fourth annual IFCIC Prize for Young, Independent Production Co. to Yann Gilbert's La Mouche du Coche Films at a ceremony in Paris Wednesday night.

Created in 2004, the prize is worth 10,000 euros ($14,720). A jury presided by head of the IFCIC's council, Hughes R. Gall, and composed of industry professionals reached its verdict Dec. 5 and the award was handed out by Gaumont chairman Nicolas Seydoux late Wednesday.

La Mouche de Coche Films, which translates as "the fly on the notch," was created in 2000 and has recently produced feature films Christophe Loizillon's "My Camera and Me" and Cecile Telerman's "Tout Pour Plaire."

Catherine Castel's "48 Hours per Day" is currently in post-production and the young company is looking for financing for Cecile Telerman's second movie "La Faute des Meres."
