Association éQuinoxe was established in 1993 by Noëlle Deschamps and Canal+, and was subsequently joined in 1994 by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Its mission is to support authors, directors and producers of independent European and North American film. Every year, éQuinoxe holds two scriptwriting workshops. For each of these workshops, young writers from various European countries are selected and gathered together to receive criticism and advice from experienced professionals in each of the fields covered.

In June 2000, a partnership is signed between the Daniel Langlois Foundation and Association éQuinoxe. The Foundation wants to encourage the development of a cinema based on independent, culturally rooted scriptwriting approaches. Through its involvement, the Foundation wishes to contribute to and support Association éQuinoxe's efforts by also offering opportunities for new digital production technologies.
