Reminder: Registration for the 12th FIFO are open until 1 October 2014

Posted Monday 08 Sep 2014

Registration for the 12th edition of the Oceanian International Documentary Film Festival ( FIFO) is open. You still have a month to record your movies and help us convey our call for applications.

FIFO will be held at the "Maison de La Culture" in Papeete, Tahiti, from 31st January to 8th February 2015. Several events will accompany the screening of selected films, such as the 5th Oceania Pitch, the Oceanian Television Conference, the Oceanian Fiction Night, special screenings and conferences. More than just a festival, FIFO is above all a state of mind, and the organisers work throughout the year to promote films by organising, regionally as well as in Paris, 'Hors les Murs' off-site screenings or in partnership with other festivals.

The documentaries presented look at all aspects of Oceania and the Pacific islands: social, economic, ethnological, cultural and environmental and they should last between 15 and 90 minutes. Films over 90 minutes can be considered for selection, but only in the 'Non-competition' category. Films prior to January 2011 shall not be taken into account. The documentaries compete for the FIFO France T�l�visions Grand Prix, 3 Special Prizes, and 1 Public Prize. All these prizes will be awarded in cash.

To validate the registration, organisers need to receive 3 copies of the films submitted, on DVD or USB key, as well as 3 photos from the film and the completed registration form. Registration is possible online on our website but please note that it is essential to send the film, they do not accept trailers.

You can now send your films to:  FIFO Tahiti, BP 1709 Papeete 98713 Papeete - Tahiti French Polynesia before 1st October 2014. They advise not waiting for the closing date to send files to facilitate the work of the pre-selection committee responsible for viewing the films.

The selection announcement will be made at the start of November 2014. The films selected in the competition and non-competition categories must be sent to the Festival organisation via a dedicated Full HD digital server - MPEG4 H264 before 1st December 2014 for processing. For the films in competition requiring subtitles, the script of the documentary must be sent in .srt format for translation as quickly as possible.

Registration for short Oceanian fiction films is also open. The films sent should be between 2 and 20 minutes, and they need a digital copy or DVD, as well as a photo and the film script for the films in English. The closing date for registration is 1st October. The selected films will compete for the Public Prize at the 'Oceanian Fiction' evening which will take place on 31st January 2015.

Registration for Oceania Pitch is also open.  Please contact the organisers for any further information. They eagerly await your creations,
