WELCOME TO FIFO 2021 DIGITAL EVENT
Our Oceanian odyssey began in 2004. Shy at first, uncertain, FIFO quickly became an unavoidable event for the audio-visual sector from the Pacific. Over the years, Tahiti has become the Oceanian documentary film capital, a place where Oceanians meet and reveal themselves to the eyes of the world.
New factors compel this 18 th edition of our festival to regenerate itself. The troubled waters we are navigating on are challenging us to stay on track and to keep moving forward. If the FIFO’s canoe sometimes stops in different location to share the wonders from the 7e art she carries, she has never stopped her voyage. This year is no exception to the rule and represents a challenge as daunting as it is stimulating. But as our tupuna before us, we know how to navigate through the storm and how to adapt. They knew it already, perhaps better than us: one cannot struggle against headwinds. One adjusts his sails.
Hence, FIFO 2021 is adjusting fer sails as the festival evolves to be fully digital. This year, from the comfort of your own home you can watch 9 competing films, 11 non-competing films, special screenings, meetings, workshops and many other surprises that we have prepared for this FIFO of a new genre. Continue your journey throughout Oceania aboard our 2.0 va’a with of our e-guests, via videoconferencing either live or on replay. Meet directors and producers from New Zealand, New Caledonia, Australia, Hawaii… all of this, without leaving your living room!
Thanks to the magic of the Internet and despite the particular circumstances, we again invite you to join us on an emotional and fascinating journey into the heart of ourselves.
‘A tāhō’ē ‘e ‘a FIFO ana’e tātou !
