Welcome to the 31st edition of Fipa !
Join us in Biarritz from January 23-28, 2018 and discover the best Fipa yet !
Fipa’s mission is as focused as ever: to highlight the diversity and transversal nature of international audiovisual creation and production in the fields of documentary, drama, and new writing. Every year—with Fipa’s increasingly demanding selection process rewarding risk-taking and intelligence—the Festival offers a vast panorama of audiovisual creation from around the globe. In addition to the official competition, “new” practical and theme-based professional events promote networking, create new opportunities, and inspire stakeholders from across the industry. Naturally, innovation remains at heart of the Festival with Smart Fipa, a trend lab dedicated to digital creation and new forms of expression. Through the Fipa Campus programme, the Festival renews its ongoing commitment to education in visual appreciation and to scouting new talent to help tomorrow’s masters get their first break. Last but not least, Fipa Focus shines a spotlight on a specific country: for 2018, Israel is our guest of honour.
For six days, the who’s who of the international audiovisual sector will gather in Biarritz. This 31st edition is brimming with opportunities to make new discoveries and new contacts. Come and be part of the most festive, creative, convivial, and inspiring Fipa to date !
