The creation of festivals in the Pacific region has largely contributed to the development of Oceanian documentaries. Driven by a common desire to carry the voice of Oceania and make her culture universally celebrated, these festivals also forge solid links, promoting the productions from our great oceanic continent.
In order to honour these co-operations, in 2016 the FIFO organized the first convention of Pacific festivals and thus reaffirmed the need to strengthen the synergy between Pacific nations. An initiative that resulted in may 2016 in the creation of the Pacific Alliance for Documentary and Interactive Storytelling Agreement, in Wellington, New Zealand. The FIFO (Tahiti), Doc Edge (New Zealand), Ânûû-rû Âboro festival (New Caledonia) and Hawaiian International Film Festival are the four founding members. With they signed this agreement, they marked a turning point in the future of oceanian documentaries.
The PADISA is intended to facilitate the sharing of data, networks, achievements and resources and to encourage audiovisual co-productions between festival members. This union will also boost Pacific audiovisual markets and open the way for us to higher visibility on the international scene. The FIFO 2017 is honoured to represent this regional unit, welcoming into its heart, the first Annual General Meeting of the PADISA.
