Fifo Festival in Tahiti

Oceanian Screens

Each year FIFO reunites people around a subject as vast as it is complex: Oceania. An immense marine continent, with over 30 million people spread across more than 10,000 islands. For 14 years, this festival has introduced the population of Papeete and elsewhere to these cultures and peoples. The production capacity of Australia and New Zealand, our "big islands", allows them greater visibility, but all the oceanian peoples have the right to be represented at the FIFO.

This is the very essence of the festival and even more so of the “Oceanian screens” section. So that no country, no people, in Oceania, may be forgotten, “Oceanian screens” highlights these little known lands and tales of Oceania. Tokelau, Salomon, Tonga, or Guam, are little known but they have so much to tell! The festival allows us to connect with these remote islands, who have their own specifi- cities but who often share the same issues as others in the area.

This year, 10 films have been selected for the category of “Oceanian screens”. Each of them, including a Polynesian production, will compete for the audience’s special prize.
