Xilam is a French production company that specializes in animated television series and feature films. Marc du Pontavice and his brother Alix founded it in 1999 as a replacement for the animation division of Gaumont Multimédia; though Gaumont would continue to have a deal with Xilam until 2003. Gaumont Multimédia continued as a video game publisher until it closed down in 2004.

In 2019, it was announced that Xilam would be acquiring 50.1% of French CG studio Cube Creative.[2] The deal was finalized on January 20, 2020.[3]


Programs such as Shuriken School,[4] Space Goofs,[5] and Oggy and the Cockroaches[6] were internationally successful. In 2003, the company released its first animated feature film, the CGI-based Kaena: The Prophecy,[7] and, in 2005, announced an animated film based on The New Adventures of Lucky Luke.[8] In 2012, they announced Oggy and the Cockroaches: The Movie.[9] In 2016 the studio opened a new office in Lyon.[10]
