FIFO - Reminder!

Posted Friday 11 Sep 2015

The 13th edition of the International Festival of Oceanian documentary films (FIFO Tahiti), will take place from January 30th to February 7th 2016 in Papeete (Tahiti - French Polynesia)

The competition is open to all productions concerning Oceania which are not older than three years.

Remember registration for the 13th edition of the Oceanian International Documentary Film Festival ( FIFO) is open. The deadline is October 1 2015.

There are no inscription fees and the organiser ask that you don't wait for the closing date to send files to facilitate the work of the pre-selection committee responsible for viewing the films.

Like every year, FIFO will select about 40 films, in two categories : Films in the category 'in competition' will be presented to an international jury which will assign a big prize and three special prices. Films in competition and out of competition are also eligible to the audience award. Every prize is a money prize.

You can also register your project with their website : http://www.fifo-tahiti.com/

Also note that they have a category for shorts fiction films (30 mn max). The selection will be screened for the �  7th Oceanian short fiction film night � of FIFO 2016. And the audience will select the best short film.

And FIFO is more than a festival, they are a pool of ideas and creation, organizing different events for professional guests, such as the Oceanian television dialogue, the night of the fiction and practical workshops around filmmaking, as well as an oceanian doc market place and the pitch dating.
