We also screen short fiction films (30 mn max) directed by Oceanian filmmakers at FIFO. Selected films will be screened during the Night of the Fictions special showcase occurring off of the festival. All selected fiction short-films are eligible to the audience award for the best Oceanian Fiction. Submission forms are downloadable from the same address as mentioned above.

FIFO is more than a festival, it is also a pool of ideas and creation, organizing different events for our professional guests, such as the Oceanian television symposium, practical workshops for filmmaking, as well as an Oceanian TV Symposium and a pitch event.
