The International Oceanian Documentary Film Festival is taking place in Tahiti from February 12 to February 16. This festival was created in 2004. Its aim is to promote Oceania and make it visible through documentary films. In the context of a galloping globalisation, its ambition is to bring the voice of the peoples and cultures of Oceania beyond its shores. Its objective is also to promote Oceania’s cinema and filmmakers on the screens of the world.
The FIFO also allows audiovisual professionals from the South Pacific to meet each other. It brings together directors and producers, technicians and TV stations, representatives of foreign festivals and distributors. This year, 13 films are in competition. There are also 12 films out of competition and 8 short documentaries and fiction films. The winners will be announced on 12 February.
