    Abstract This paper uses data from the Information System on New Firms (Système d’information sur les nouvelles entreprises, SINE) to study the determinants of cultural firms’ lifetime in France. 47.5% of cultural firms started since 1998 have not survived their sixth year in business. This proportion is closed to the proportion of firms which died the first six years but hides differences according sectors and periods of time. The incidence rate of artistic firms is high the first four years but decreases over time. The audiovisual firms have a constant incidence rate and the firms dealing with cultural products an incidence rate which increases after two years of existence. Duration and limited-dependent variable models are employed to ascertain the importance of geographical clustering in firms’ survival. New cultural firms profit from the presence of other cultural firms. This effect tends to explain the productivity of the cultural clustering, whether they are qualified cultural pole of competitiveness or cultural district. JEL Classification: C41, L25, R12.
