FIDLab is an international coproduction platform setting up meetings between projects and possible co-producers, distributors, representatives of international cinema funds, sales agents, curators, programmers and other potential financial partners. FIDLab offers a dynamic and active work environment, where artistic and economic joint ventures are created.

For the call for entries 2018, 12 projects were selected from more than 320 applications from 63 countries. In the past 9 editions FIDLab has selected 102 projects and more than 63% are now completed films with a rich and diverse visibility and success. Since our last edition for example, Braguino by Clément Cogitore (FIDLab 2016) won the Zabaltegi-Tabakalera Award at San Sebastian Film Festival; Le Fort des Fous by Narimane Mari (FIDLab 2014) made its Premiere at the Locarno Festival, just as Ouroboros by Basma Alsharif (FIDLab 2016); Bitter Money by Wang Bing (FIDLab 2014) which won the Orizzonti Prize for Best Screenplay in Venice Film Festival, was released in theatres in France on December 2017.

FIDLab lasts for two days: visual and oral presentations are followed by one-to-one meetings. FIDLab has the same criteria as FIDMarseille: it has no restriction of genre, length or format, and gives a particular attention to those films that cross the boundaries between fiction and documentary.

We are pleased to welcome you in Marseille to discover the new selection!
