Global / Documentary / Shorts



FIDlab offers a meeting place for discussing film projects selected from all over the world, in order to offer film-makers an opportunity to make useful contacts and network with producers, distributors, international sales agents, sponsors, and broadcaster.

Each year 10 international projects are selected, chosen with no specific format requirements regarding format, length, or subject matter, and including both fiction and documentary films whether they are at the writing stage, in production, or post-production.

FIDLab lasts for two days - visual and oral presentations are followed by one-to-one meetings.

 Different from a market or a platform purely for promotion, FIDLab offers the professional audience a chance to see not only images (locations, rushes, first edits) but also artistic and film influences that may increase our understanding of the work in progress.

In a diverse, international context, FIDLab aims to reinforce projects chosen not only for their artistic and creative qualities, which coincide with the FIDMarseille’s editorial ethos, but also for their international potential and market accessibility. 
Amongst the 130 selected films, International and World Premieres compose the Official Selection. A retrospective and six parallel screenings are proposed as well as programming for a young public. Unexpected, daring, relevant, rebellious, as surprising as our world itself: this is the kind of filmmaking the FID rejoices in screening!

With an increasing audience, more than 700 professionals, 80 filmmakers invited, 100 journalists, festival directors and programmers, as well as producers and distributors from worldwide, FIDMarseille is a major meeting place for public and professionals. The last edition of FIDMarseille has confirmed the importance of among the other international festivals.

FIDMarseille is part of Doc Alliance.

Accreditations (professionals and press) and public passes are available on the festival website from June 1 following our press conference.
