The second edition of the FIDLab came to end on July 9, 2010 in Marseille.

11 projects, 10 countries were represented among the selected projects.
Contrary to the traditional pitches organized by the markets, the FIDLab puts forward an original formula where the artistic project is at the core of the device. Two steps, an oral and visual presentation of the projects at their current stage of development followed by one-to-one meetings with professionals.
The jury composed of Daniela Elstner, Bruno Bettati and Jean des Forêts have endowed two awards:
The Panavision and Air France awards have been issued to A SPELL TO WARD OFF THE DARKNESS, of two artists Ben Rivers and Ben Russell, produced by Leif Magne Tangen from Vitakuben:

The prize endowed was given during the ceremony held at l’Espace Pernod in presence of Jean-Pierre Rehm, general delegate of the FIDMarseille and Fabienne Moris, head of the FIDLab.
