El FIPADOC sale de su crisálida
Graves Without a Name, de Rithy Panh

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

After 31 editions of devoting itself to general, non-specific audiovisual production, the FIPA has decided to change tack, taking note of the huge upheaval that has occurred in the festival landscape – particularly the heightened competition generated by the emergence of events devoted to series. Rechristened FIPADOC and equipped with a brand-new team (with Anne Georget serving as president and Christine Camdessus as artistic director), the gathering, whose 2019 edition will unspool in Biarritz from 22-27 January and will be opened by the British production John and Yoko: Above Us Only Sky by Michael Epstein, has thus opted to favour the documentary, a genre in which it undeniably has the upper hand in terms of the industry calendar.

In its international competition, 11 titles (which are as yet unreleased in France) will be weighed up by a jury that includes US director Shola Lynch, Finland’s Leena Pasanen (who is the artistic director of Dok Leipzig and will take over the reins of the Biografilm festival in 2020) and French broadcaster Charles Hembert (Le Meilleur du Cinéma/UniversCiné; Blaq Out). The movies in the running are Graves Without a Name [+lee también:
