An event of cultural exchange and discovery
Oceania is a vast territory with a rich but still relatively unknown culture. With the help of events like the FIFO, this culture is better understood and a revelation to the whole world. During several days, Tahiti thus becomes the capital of the Pacific documentary film industry. The festival is a cosmopolitan crossroad; the Organizing Committee hopes to welcome more than 80 festival-goers from all over the Pacific Ocean (directors, organizers and other specialists for audiovisual and cinema).
All these films will be screened in the Grand Theater and the Little Theater of the “Maison de la Culture” and in the cinema “Majetic” in Papeete. For this edition, the themes remain those that strike a nerve in the Oceania psyche : the national identity claim, protection of the environment, culture and languages.
The festival is an opportunity for all cinemaphiles to meet the players in the Polynesian audiovisual sector. You can interact with them during conferences and seminars in an atmosphere of friendship and professional exchange. In addition, the event allows the public to have a glimpse of all aspects of filmmaking thanks to various workshops. For example, you may be introduced to the web documentary writing and producing, the presentation of a synopsis file, the making of an animated video or the creation of a “stop motion” film.
Enjoy this year’s festival!
