Oliva Oliva by Peter Hoffmann

As its name indicates, FIDMarseille remains in Marseilles, and it is thus in Marseilles that the 17th edition will take place this summer.
This shall in no way keep the world premieres or French premieres unveiled at the festival from quitting the port to sail under foreign skies. There is of late a special reason to rejoice, as a harvest of films selected at the FID are currently playing nationwide. No less than five releases in the last two months! Hailed by the press for their demandingness, vitality, and singularity, each of these films boasts the energy of the documentary genre, each speaks a unique language. The public can thus benefit from these adventures off the beaten path, adventures all the more striking in that the majority was produced with the most precarious means, far from the mainstream’s flotsam of diktats. Avi Mograbi, Olivier Zabat, Peter Hoffmann, Jacques Kébadian and Joani Hocquenghem, Pierre Creton are the names of these adventurers, and we thank them for their tenacity.


We also remind you that the Jeu de Paume in
Paris is currently screening 16 films from the selection of the 16th edition.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that online inscriptions for the 17th edition are possible beginning December 19th.
