FID Marseille announces “first post-Covid film festival in the world”

Live 31st edition running 22-26 July to include 82 films from 31 countries. Industry component FIDLab to run online 6-10 July.

 

Seventeen films from 16 countries will compete in International Competition (see below) at the 31st FID Marseille, with nine films directed by women.

 

Across all competitions (International, French, Premiers and CNAP) the gender split is exactly 50/50. The 4 competitive sections gather 50 films, including 46 world premieres and 4 international premieres, representing 28 countries.

 

A new competition entitled FLASH “brings together films as dazzling as lightnings that are true cinematic proposals, regardless of their brief duration” and traverses the other four competition sections. Two prizes will be awarded, one of which, the Alice Guy Prize, will go to a female director.

 

German filmmaker Angela Schanelec will be awarded the Grand Prix d’Honneur and the festival will screen a retrospective of her films. A modest tribute, will also be paid to “the amazing actor” Michel Piccoli. 

 

The FIDLab will be held online from July 6 to 10, as already announced.
