  PRESS HIGHLIGHTS of the 24th edition of FIDMarseille:
   
  One of the best references in the world for documentary cinema continues its mission as pioneer. . .
Les Inrockuptibles – 29 May - 4 June 2013
  For the 24th edition of the major Marseille festival, the programming once again gives pride of place to documentary creation while also including some feature films, in the spirit that is completely unique to FIDMarseille.
Théo Ribeton - Les Inrockuptibles – 3 July 2013
       
  FIDMarseille didn’t wait for the city to become the cultural capital before venturing onto film territories unexplored or rapidly changing.
Eric Loret - Libération – 4 July 2013
  As is usual every year, the challenge of attending the FIDMarseille is to find one’s way amongst the 120 films included in the programme, probably one of the most carefully “thought out” on the world-wide festival circuit [. . . ]. The FID organizes this state of urgency every year, outlining, amidst inevitable pitfalls, the map of another freer and more pressing cinema, rediscovering genealogies, reinventing filiations, proposing a thousand ways of crossing.
Jacques Mandelbaum - Le Monde – 7/8 July 2013
       
  A week of exploration in the maze of a selection as rich as it is mad and heterogeneous.
Laurent Rigoulet - Télérama – 10 July 2013
  The earth turns around Marseille.
The Festival international de cinema de Marseille, more and more uncompromising, offers a veritable vision of the world via a selection of a radiant variety.

Jean-Bapiste Morain - Les Inrockuptibles – 17 July 2013
       
  Bonfires. At the close of FIDMarseille, we are left with the memory of films that are demanding, simple, serious, comic, innocent, sly, solitary, populated, hedonistic, anxious.
Antoine Thirion - Indépendencia – 15 July 2013
  FIDMarseille 2013, constituting the gaze. Return to Marseille where the FID takes place, we intersect with the most beautiful films, sublimated or threatened landscapes, we enter into an asylum, a literary club and a caravan, we come at last close to what it is to make (or to no longer make) films.
Benoit Hické - Gaité-lyrique.net – 18 July 2013
       
  A unique rendez-vous for those passionate about novel cinematographic forms, a programming that is well known for being demanding.
Emmanuel Vigne - Ventilo – July 1, 2013
   
       
  The 24th  edition of the Festival International de Cinéma -  FIDMarseille was held from July 2 – 8, 2013. Over 7 days, in 7 theatres in Marseille, 126 from all over the world, documentaries and fictions, were screened in international and national competitions, first films and parallel screens.
With more than 44 films in world and international premiere, and six parallel screens that paid an exhaustive homage to Pier Paolo Pasolini, the programming was rich in discoveries and rediscoveries.
This edition welcomed more than 20,000 spectators, 630 professional and 160 filmmakers from all over the world.
Outdoor screening and ciné-concerts (the films of Max Linder and Edward S. Curtis as guests of honor), opening and closing screenings of films by Alexey Fedorchenko (“Celestial Wives of the Meadow Mari”) and Jonas Mekas (“Outtakes from the Life of a Happy Man”), round-tables on the Parallel Screens, encounters with filmmakers, collaborations with our partners completed this rich programme.
The national and international juries were presided respectively by Ursula Biemann and Eija-Liisa Ahtila, and awarded prizes worth 30 000 €.

FIDMarseille thanks its official partners who greatly contributed to its success:
Ville de Marseille, Conseil Régional Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Conseil Général des Bouches-du-Rhône, CNC, Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, Marseille Provence Métropole, Marseille Provence 2013, Orange, Air France, La Poste, Procirep.

Each of the first 15 respondents will win a free pass for 2 persons.

MARK COHEN
DARK KNEES, 1969-2012
From September 27 - December 8, 2013


E BAL presents this fall the first major European exhibition of the American photographer, Mark Cohen. The exhibition will be accompanied by a book coedited by LE BAL and the Editions Xavier Barral.

Tirelessly surveying the streets of his native city and its surroundings, Mark Cohen captures, or more precisely takes samples, fragments of gestures, postures or bodies. In his images, numerous torsos without faces, smiling children who are complicit but also horrifyingly vulnerable, legs with furtive lines, coats that are like armour. In cutting and sculpting in the depth of the world, Mark Cohen’s photography imposes by successive touches a Kafkaesque vision, ruthless and poetic, of a territory with which he is one. A vision from within.

The exhibition is co-produced by LE BAL and the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam (from November 8, 2014 - January 11, 2015)

In collaboration with the Bruce Silverstein Gallery in New York and  the ROSEGALLERY in Los Angeles.
With the support of the Cultural Affairs Office of the U.S. Embassy.

FID Marseille has been the first french festival to support Rosen work. Find on the FIF website, a text by Jean-Pierre Rehm — unpublished in french —, on this uncommon artiste and originaly published by the canadian magazine Cinema Scope.

As part of the VideoFID evenings, FIDMarseille is pleased to invite you, on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at 8 p.m. on its premises for a screening of the film INSTRUCTIONS POUR UNE PRISE D'ARMES by Laurent Krief, in French Competition, winner of the Rencontres Cinématographiques Prize of Cerbère-Portbou, screened in its world premiere at FID 2013. The director will be on hand

   
  Instructions.jpg

Take a classroom board, a maths teacher, and a call borrowed from Auguste Blanqui as a title. The scene is set. For a lesson? No, something else is up. With which actors, then? Secondary-school pupils, whose voices succeed one another in faltering German, to sing at first an extract from Wagner’s Parsifal. What is at stake here? It isn’t about giving people a say, that old delusive device, that so-called guarantee of authenticity. It is rather about providing ways to invent and elaborate such a speech. Other verses follow, by Mahmoud Darwish, Rimbaud, Plato revisited by Alain Badiou, or even Joy Division. The movement of the words unites with that of the teenage bodies for an eulogy of a deft run through the school facilities, an escape to a city taken from the rear: bypassing, climbing, going from black to white. The film develops a dialectic and a policy of individual bodies, glorified here as messengers of History. In a France denounced as postcolonial, via a detour through Palestine, Histories are going around. Thus in this first, openly ambitious film shot in a school, Laurent Krief turns words, philosophical dialogue and poetry into enemies of academic knowledge: a war catch for a future emancipation.
