About us


The Bureau international de l’édition française (BIEF) is a non-profit organisation representing 280 publishers. BIEF ensures the collective presence of French publishing in many international book fairs, organizes professional seminars between French and foreign publishers and conducts marketing research in the publishing sector throughout the world. In cooperation with SCELF, BIEF develops its promotion of French books for film adaptations by proposing professional meetings between publishers and foreign producers, producing catalogues, creating and running an Internet site: BIEF’s office in New York, The French Publishers’ Agency, presents French publishing to American publishers and producers.


The Société Civile des Éditeurs de Langue Française (SCELF) is a collecting society created in 1960. It represents French book publishers and collects adaptation rights from other French collecting societies on behalf of its members. It also has a role of legal advisor to its members. For the past few years, SCELF has been organizing events and partnerships in order to promote film and TV adaptations and develop the publisher’s role in the exploitation of authors’ rights.
