Fipa is the festival for innovative ideas, exhilarating projects, and adventurous unveilings, that will be presented within the framework of SmartFipa@, Fipa Industry, and the forums dedicated to meet-ups, debates, and pitching sessions.
Fipa is a showcase for creation, and with each passing year, the festival presents an increasingly rich variety of dramas, documentaries and reportages: the crème de la crème of the world’s audiovisual production. For five days, the Fipa travels from country to country, from continent to continent, to bring you the very best in television from near and far.
It is the festival for novelty and innovation: the majority of programmes featured at Fipa have never been broadcast. What’s more, Fipa provides a myriad of opportunities to come into contact with the people who are shaping tomorrow’s programmes today. Find out what drives them, inspires them, and what it is they strive to achieve.
Since the day I fell in love with television, many years ago, I have held the firm belief that the industry must strive for excellence. The Fipa teams in both Paris and Biarritz share my ambition for Fipa 2015: that the wide variety of programmes featured will inspire you, reveal the reality of today’s world, give you insight into what it may become.
Didier Decoin, Fipa President
