Fifo Festival in Tahiti

6th Oceanian Short Film Night

Free Entrance
Saturday 31st January from 7 pm to 9:30 pm at the Grand Théâtre of the " Maison de la Culture"

FIFO has welcomed new formats for several years now through a series of fringe events that are increasing in number year upon year. Fiction and short films are slotting in quite naturally. Forward-looking in terms of audio-visual creation, short films in fact represent a highly diverse area for creation, forming a springboard for new generations.

For this 6th oceania short film night, the public will be shown an emotion-charged and explosive selection addressing serious issues or far-fetched situations...

The public will be asked to vote on their favorite at the end of the night. A special prize will be attributed during the awards ceremony
