An authorization request must be submitted for all BnF sites. Filming or photography fees must be paid; costs depend on the use made of images. However, no fee shall be charged when images are intended for private use (without any commercial or professional use).

Please note:

Any filming or photography of François-Mitterrand Library requires permission from the Société des auteurs dans les arts graphiques et plastiques and consequently from BnF and the architect Dominique Perrault. Fees corresponding to author’s rights are applied and depend on the use made of images.
