Created by law on 25 October 1946 as the Centre national de la cinématographie (National Centre for Cinematography), it is currently directed by Frédérique Bredin. The CNC replaced the Office professionnel du cinéma (OPC), its predecessor established during the reign of Vichy France for wartime censorship.

The CNC archives are located in the former Fort de Bois-d'Arcy to the southwest of Paris. Initially established in 1969 to house combustible nitrate films, the archives now house modern acetate films as well.[1]
