The Call for projects for the 2012 FIDLab is open from October 15, 2012 - February 8, 2013. Please consult our website and register online.

  
 
  
 On the occasion of 2012 FIDMarseille, Paul Otchakovsky-Laurens was elected President by the Festival’s Board of Directors. We have the pleasure to share with you his acceptance speech, delivered during the closing ceremony of the 23rd edition of the FIDMarseille.
  
 “When a friend who sits on the FID’s Board of Directors asked me if I would accept to run it, and after having of course said yes, I was elected, I felt joy and pride.

Proud to actively participate in the FID’s life, in its perpetuation and in the development of a festival with an international dimension of which Marseille and region can be justly proud.

Proud to represent a festival that wonderfully refuses market constraints without completing ignoring them (I’m thinking here of the FIDLab).

Proud to support in practical terms Jean-Pierre Rehm in his choices and in the risks that he takes, in this continuous search for the new and the unconventional in their juxtaposition and confrontation with old and classical heritage.

As for my joy, it is first of all that of having yet another reason, this one implacable, for coming to the FID and discovering every year as a spectator a programme I could describe as frenzied, so rich and diverse is it, but that is also characterized by a great coherence, underpinned by a reflection on cinema. Dense and clear, as Walter Murch, the major editor and theorist of editing, might say. We had the good fortune of having Murch with us last night at the Criée, when he engaged in a fascinating interview, a kind of master class.

I feel joy too, because after two exciting years as Chair of the CNC’s Advance on Receipts, to be able to continue working for the cinema, in a structure that, deep down, closely resembles that of an ideal publishing house: all genres, all tones, all possible lengths, debut works as well as consecrated works. A CREATION that is quite simply lively and contradictory.

Finally, I come back to pride to say how I honored I am to succeed Aurélie Filippetti from whom we expect much in this extremely uneasy and uncertain times. Facing the dangers of deregulating the markets of creation, facing the hegemonic ambitions of the big telecommunication companies. For the protection of a copyright law that protects authors, creators, and those who subsequently have the self-appointed mission of transmitting creation.”
  
 Paul Otchakovsky-Laurens was born in 1944. After studying law, he changed his direction, and in 1969, an internship with the publisher Christian Bourgois convinced him to work in this sector. First, at Flammarion (1970-1977) where he created the collection “Textes,” dedicated to contemporary literature, then at Hachette (Hachette/P.O.L). In 1983, he founded the publishing house P.O.L that he still directs today. He has made a feature-length video “Sablé-sur-Sarthe, Sarthe” (2007), that was screened in the international competition, in its world premiere at FID 2007.
  
 
  
 Le mois du film documentaire (The month of the documentary film), 1635 films of diverse forms to be discovered, and coordinated by Images en Bibliothèques, make November a major event for documentary cinema, in metropolitan France, as well as in its overseas territories and in the world.
To find films shown at the FID that have been programmed near you, please consult the website.
  
 
  
 The symposium SERGE DANEY, « une pensée en forme de boussole », organised by Extérieur Nuit, will be held in Marseille, from November 16 – December 8, 2012, with contributions by Raymond Bellour, Jean-Louis Comolli, André S. Labarthe, Serge Le Péron, Jean-Pierre Rehm, Jacques Rozier et Marcos Uzal
  
 
  
 Le Festival des Cinémas d’Afrique du Pays d’Apt is taking place from November 8 – 14, 2012.
From its opening session, the festival is faithful to its mission: to make available the production of the entire African continent, with a programme that is equally demanding for the quality of the films presented, as well as for the wealth of their contents. For the programme, a special focus on Algeria pays homage to that country’s 50 years of independence.
  
 
  
 You can read about Doc Alliance in its monthly newsletter and on its website, including the monthly events films that have been recently added to the catalogue and to the calendar.
The jury Doc Alliance 2012 (Özge Calafato, Eva Mulvad, Sean Farnel) awarded the Doc Alliance Prize to “The Will" by Christian Sonderby Jespen. He received the prize during the opening ceremony of DOK Leipzig, on October 29, 2012.

VideoFID

  
 As part of the VideoFID evenings, FIDMarseille held a screening on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 8 p.m. of the film
JJA by Gaëlle Boucand, winner of a mention for the Grand Prix of the French Competition, and screened at FID 2012 in
Its world premiere. The director was on hand.
  
 
  JJA are his initials. This is the portrait of those initials: JJA in the garden, JJA in a deckchair on his balcony, in his office, in his bathroom. All in all, JJA, and his loneliness. His large mansion in Switzerland called “Rosebud” is the sole setting of the film, as decided by Gaëlle Boucand. But even though lonesomeness seems to be his fate, as was the case for Welles’ Kane, this deserted setting is filled with an unceasing flood of words.
So what exactly is being told in this enclosed place? Many stories, actually – complicated, undecipherable business stories, about financial scams perpetrated upon him. And there he goes, appraising his success, evoking with resignation his setbacks with lawyers, business partners, his ex-wife, or local shopkeepers who have pinned him as a tax dodger. He soliloquises, shares his memories, his obsession with numerology, his relationship with money, works of art, interior design, the building of a hen-house, and converses at great length about the state of the world or mere anecdotes. He just talks endlessly. Filmed in static shots, indoor or outdoor, he starts a reflection here, resumes it there, without never really finish it. There is a gap, a kaleidoscopic diffraction between his voice and his body, as if they were disconnected. Clearly, in spite of his loud confession, JJA remains a mystery. But another, distanced portrait emerges: the portrait of a form of power, that of speech and of a man who secures a kind of order with his own words. (NF)
