‘Ia ora na e Maeva

Welcome to the official website of the International Oceanian Documentary Film Festival (FIFO) !

The 20th edition of FIFO will take place from February 4 to 12, 2023.

The physical version will be held as every year at the Maison de la Culture de Tahiti – Te Fare Tauhiti Nui. The digital FIFO will be accessible from French Polynesia, mainland France, the countries of Oceania and overseas territories, by going to the ‘Online‘ tab.

FIFO is the unmissable meeting place for documentary film enthusiasts. Every year, it brings to mind the voices, cultures and issues of the Pacific beyond the borders of our great ocean. It is also a unique professional opportunity for the media and the audiovisual sector in the Pacific: the possibility of meeting the directors and producers of the films selected and attending conferences, workshops and other events that immerse you in the audiovisual universe of the Pacific.

Ready to board our canoe (vā’a) of the 8th art?
Haere Mai! Let’s explore Oceania on a journey of emotions, discoveries and sharing, carried by the audiovisual talents of the Pacific.
