A festival to what end? To share, with all our audiences, today’s cinemas. Yes, the cinema harbors a plurality of forms, of formats, of lengths, of approaches, and of visions. A unique moment when filmmakers from all over the world nurture our present with all they have. FIDMarseille’s roots in documentary filmmaking recall the realities of our fertile terrain, without ever forgetting that different worlds are to be found in this soil and that there are many ways to testify to them. And if testifying is urgently required, we also know that courage, aptness, and even a cheerful conviction are likewise needed, in order to make audible and visible and to move ahead. Unexpected, daring, relevant, rebellious, as surprising as our world itself: this is the kind of filmmaking the FID rejoices in championing!
Every year in early July, the FIDMarseille —Marseille International Film Festival— proposes a programme of 150 films to approximately 25,000 spectators, in cinemas, theaters, libraries, art galleries, and in open-air amphitheaters throughout the city. The festival presents a large number of films in their world premiere as well as first films. Today, the FIDMarseille is recognized as a source of new cinemas, both documentary productions as well as fiction films.
In addition, the FIDMarseille organizes:
* the FIDLab, a support platform for international co-production
* the FIDCampus, a training workshop for Mediterranean students
and numerous offsite screenings throughout the year.
