Registration for films for the 19th FID will be open
from December 14, 2007 – March 15, 2008.
Please
consult our website to register online.

Following the example of last year’s festival, the
international and national competitions are now open to
fiction films as documentaries. We said it last year and
we repeat it again today: it is not a question of creating
a sterile contrast between the true and the made up,
but instead of appreciating a film as a producer of
meaning, of truth, of intelligence and of our world. We
can never have enough of that.

Jean-Pierre Rehm

“(…) Today, I offer my part of creation, already accomplished, to the part that is creative, conscious, within reach of everyone, of those whom we would like to enclose definitively in an anonymous and depersonalized entity, reduced to a globalized mass, the Public. To those who want it, I render individually my secret films.”
