10.7 is the name in kilometres of a beach in the Mediterranean which shimmers all shades of blue. It is also the name of an audiovisual production company founded in 2011.
After having produced the “Faites Tourner” series for Canal+ over a period of years, the company led by Victor ROBERT has increased in size and widened its scope since August 2017.
From documentary films (one-offs or series) to digital content and institutional output, today 10.7 continues to grow by developing dramatic projects and magazine programmes that experiment with different formats, as well as films with a global reach, all while looking to diversify its partner broadcasters.
10.7 was founded in 2011 by Victor Robert.
