|Registration for entering the 19th FIDMarseille is open until March |
15, 2008. Please consult our website to register your film 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.
|FIDMarseille is a partner in “AN OPEN CAGE, an event around |
John Cage” from January 26 – February 29, a series of events
about John Cage, on the proposal of Alphabetville.
SOUND by Dick Fontaine will be screened continuously at the FID
Video Library, from Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
