FIDMarseille festival is celebrated from the 19th to the 25th of July.
In this edition, one Catalan production will be part of the festival’s official selection. This refers to the short documentary named La sangre es blanca directed by Óscar Vincentelly (Dvein Films). The short’s world premiere will exhibit the director’s use of a thermal camera that manages to materialize the ritual of death in images, by the means of the hypnotic dance performed by the bodies approaching death.
Even more so, the festival’s coproduction platform, FIDLab, celebrated its13th edition last June, is a space that supports international coproductions and selects 10 international projects in development in order to expand the contact network with producers, distributers, sales sgents, sponsors and TV channels.
One Catalan projecte was selected: Reescritura (Re-Writing) directed by Víctor Iriarte (La Termita Films, ATEKALEUN and 4 A 4 Productions). The project won the Micro Climat Studios’s postproduction services award in order to be completed.
